Wouldn't a 135i Tow Hood Cover fit as well. If so, I have a spare.

I guess it could work? Not sure... where are you guys located? Do you mind if I borrow it and see if it'll work?

NOOOOOOOO!

They are different. The front costs about $20 and you have to get it painted. I just went through that. Not cheap.

Damnit. Stupid Jersey. Some jackwagon lost their front bumper on the highway. Stuck in heavy traffic and I smacked into it. Looks like the only damage was the tow hook cover popping out and a black smudge on the front valance.

We were a one-car family and we drove a Toyota Sienna minivan. So, no, I didn't care. With the 1M (or any nice car) I certainly wouldn't feel the same way.

Now that winter is just around the corner in Minnesota, I do think full serve would be nice (I'd still pump my own gas in the 1M). I'm not looking forward to the next four months of arctic temps. Getting out of the car at gas stations is not fun! I'd much rather hand the credit card out the window and stay warm...

Back on topic. Sorry to hear about the damage to your car, sergeremi. Hope it gets fixed quickly. I'd love to see some pictures of your trip when you get a few minutes.
