I installed them and they were SO easy.

All you need is a flat head screw driver.

total install time about 2 minutes MAX.

They look great on the 325!

Where can you buy those and how much?? Do they look better with chrome wheels as well. I have the sport 325 silver.

Check out the accessories catalog scans in the thread I pasted below.. you can buy the exhaust tips from any BMW dealer parts dept (but Pacific BMW and Circle BMW seem to be the cheapest according to other members here). Chrome exhaust tips are cool but pleeeeeze don't get chrome wheels.

Haha i got many opinions on the chrome for the wheels. And almost all were DO NOT GET CHROME WHEELS.. I think it makes the car look a little too flashy. I like subtle hints of class

I got mine off ebay.

I then looked at Circle BMW and they are cheaper from there.

I'm waiting on my dealer taking delivery of my order for these! If no-one else has done so, I'll make up a DIY when I get them!

I just ordered my Chrome tips from Circle Bmw (they were on sale for $24 each).. I'm getting a good deal, BUT i forgot to ask how much shipping was..eek.
Hopefully this small detail will make my e90 even more beautiful

I ordred some things from circle and shipping was like 8 bucks,

It is well worth buying the tips, it makes the rear look A LOT better.

Circle BMW Parts Website?

Does Circle BMW have a parts ordering website? I called the parts department at the dealership and they quoted me retail price ($32). I then called the Circle Wholesale Parts, and they quoted me $44.48. How did you order it for $24? Can I also pick it up at the dealer and not pay for shipping? I bought my 325i at Circle BMW - perhaps they can give me a discount...

I went to Circle Bmw's website and clicked on parts department and clicked on accessories http://www.circlebmw.com/parts/acc.htm
Thats where it has all the parts for the E90 and just scroll down to the chrome tips, and click on add to cart or whatever. Then it will ask your info and serial number (which i found out is the last 7 of your VIN). My shipping to san diego was only $7.18. But the quote of $44 sounds right, cause you have to order 2 at $24 a piece.

Thank you for the information. I just realized that I went to the wrong website! - Center BMW instead of Circle BMW. I bought my 325i at Center BMW in CA, not Circle BMW in NJ! Why do so many BMW dealerships have the letter 'C' in their names?!? Just in SoCal alone, there are Center, Century West, Crevier, and New Century.
