"year of the one" questions

I have just learned that the "Year of the One" is special to American 1er's and I was am wondering two things:

One: is there anywhere I can buy a replacement trim piece for around the "Start/Stop" button?

Two: is there anyway to replace the original certificate that signifies the "Year of the One" paperwork*?

*I just think this would be a cool thing to have since I did not receive one since i bought my car preowned.

Thank you for your help!!

It says "Year One of the One". You didn't get one because your car is "Year Two of the One". Sorry, yours ins't special!

Year 1 of the 1 signifies first calendar year of production for American spec cars. It runs jan 08 - jan 09 if memory serves. So your car is a year 1.

That being said I dont think you can replace any of the things.

Some folks give away the commemorative book that came with the first year. I picked one up from a local guy that sold his 135i. For free it was worth it, but I wouldn't have paid for it.

Someone posted a video of a flip through:

Mine was built Jan '09 and did not have the year-one stop/start ring when delivered.

In June of '09 BMW-NA contacted me and told me I was suppose to have the ring on my car because it was built in year-one production. They promptly sent it to me and paid for installation at the local dealership.

I also received the Year one book and certificate.

Do you know who I could contact to try and get the items you just described?

I suppose you could contact BMW-NA, but I have doubts on success at this point.

You might have better luck finding someone on this board that will swap rings with you.
