M135i Badges/Emblems

I was hoping someone here could help me source a set of M135i badges. It would be amazing if they were already in gloss black, but I can have them painted if I can only get stock.
The problem I have is that I can't find them anywhere. RealOEM's PN 51148055785 doesn't seem to exist.

It is also not as simple as getting a set of stock 135i emblems and sticking an M in front. The font for the numbers of the M cars is different from that of the normal cars. I like the M font better and is the main reason I want the badges set.
I can source a stock M if I can find a place that sells the numbers in the M font I would be good to go. Anyone had any luck at finding them?

I have thought about getting glossy black separate M3 and M5 badges but then I'm still missing the 1 and 'i' in M font. Any help is greatly appreciated.

You mean you can't order them at your dealer?

Is that what your dealer told you>? When you search on RealOEM.com you have to remember to check the EUROPEAN box for car specs. Just have your dealer look up an F21 or F20 M135i. Maybe the part number has changed. RealOEM is always behind some six months in updates.

My dealership? HA! Every part I ask about is not available or doesn't exist to them.

Along those lines I have researched this myself for over 2 weeks and I have exhausted every single avenue I have which is why I'm trying to group source this and get some help.

I would be happy to pay one of you (most likely the ones in Europe) to source this for me and have it shipped to me.

If I were to contact dealers directly in Europe, which countries would be the cheaper priced ones that would ship to the US?

I found a very helpful PA in London, but the problem is that it costs over $100 to have it shipped here (total). I found one site but I could only ship it to my brother-in-law in Germany and have him ship it to me.

Just at Unterberger and I couldn't find it through them. I'll have my brother contact them for me.

If you know anyone in the U.K, surely they can send this to you as a letter, not goods.

You would think, thats why I'm trying to get my brother to buy them and mail them. It would make everything much easier and less expensive.

Update, the insane shipping prices are WITH it sent in an envelope. Not only is it cheaper (still ridiculously expensive) but it was also faster than sending the part in a box.

On top of the shipping charges my bank wants to charge me a fee of $35 for me to send money to the dealership! What the hell is going on with the world? $35 for a computer to take numbers from one account and transfer them to another.
