She is a good sister for offering. I had my dad order the part an it is only $30, thank god. I am going to look for a DIY to replace it so I don't have to bring it to BMW. I also told her that we could just split the cost b/c she was nice enough to let me use her car. My initial reaction was to have her pay for it all b/c I was so pissed, but now that I have calmed down, I am more rational.
If anyone knows of a DIY to replace the cloth piece coming down the pillar along the windshield on 2000 e46 323ci please post up a link. Thanks in advance.
