Question weatherstriping/door seals

friends, where is your suggestion for aftermarket door seals? The rubber seal near the striker catch on my '07 328i driver door is damaged. Is there a good alternative supplier to the dealer? TIA

If you are looking for an aftermarket direct fit part, you're out of luck. The only ones are genuine or the super cheap kind that come in rolls that you trim to fit.

The best prices on the genuine ones are on eBay shipped from overseas.

IMO better off finding a good deal at a junkyard. Those seals are crazy expensive.

I once had a professor who worked in one of those factories and he told us why they're so expensive which was kind of cool. But it doesn't make it suck any less.

Post a picture of the damage, and maybe it can be repaired.

Not only do they cost, but BMW has lowered the quality. For example on the interior seal they took off the velvet flocking that's visible inside the car and now it's just rubber.
