Chrome Exhaust Tips

Was able to order from my dealer, took two weeks and cost $260 including tax. Part # 18.30.7.602.845 They slipped on and no tools were needed.

The single chrome tip for the xDrive20d is about $70 in the UK. $260 is a huge rip off

I got them for free, comp. w/ purchase. They are around $50.00 or so at the dealer. They just slide on.

$260.00 is quite pricey! I think I will use aluminium foil to cover the tips

Is there an updated part number and link available on the BMW site for these? I've searched google and also tried a backwards search from various forums, but can't find any add'l info.

I want to order it but want to see an actual pic, cost and also the labor associated maybe...

Don't bother having them installed by the dealership. It's a five minute job.

I don't need to take any piece/part out to put this in? What about screwing something in/on?


That part doesn't come up on the site, I'll have to call the dealer tomorrow.

I'll go look at mine later, but all you should need is a small screw driver. If that.
