part # for the tow hook cover?

Does anyone know the part # for the tow hook cover on the front bumper?

I think someone stole it. Odd that it would just pop off.

Do they come painted when ordering a new one?

nothing comes pre-painted from the factory.

Look at www.realoem.com for part #.

Most likely it fell off, yes, it's been reported before, unlikely people stole your cover.

They used to go after badges all the time (and wheel caps). Now it seems like they're going after hook covers more often.

I don't think someone stole it, it probably fell off. Sucks though. On a side note, if you are getting something painted for your car, it is a handy thing to pull off to bring to the body shop if you are not leaving your car there.

My tow hook cover fell off the back bumper. When I took it to the dealer, they said that they had seen it before and replaced it, no charge. It took a day to get and another to paint.

My back tow cover "fell off", so I went to my dealer and they replaced it under warranty. Just make sure you said it fell off and they should push it under the warranty, and no it does not come painted

Like others have said, tell them it fell off and they will cover it. It's not that big of a deal. GL

I also lost my cap today and it happened right in front of the dealer parking lot. I dropped it off to have the OEM alarm activated today and when I went to pick it up, the cap was missing!!! How do you guys make the claim from BMW under warranty. Any idea if BMW Canada offers a similar service?

if the 'ol "it feel off" line doesnt cut it....it will cost you about $10-13 for the part and anywhere for $25-$70 to paint it I hear. I was lucky and got it painted for $25 bc the guy cut me some slack. I imagine the metallic paint is more.

Don't believe him, he is just in denial that people actually steal these. Has happened to several people I know, including an M5 parked at the dealer.

Mine was stolen at work within an hour of parking it in front lot!

I got the part ordered and painted for $41.00

Good luck!
