Fasteners - Where to buy in lower mainland

Postby caesarDX » 28 Oct 2013 15:16

Hi guys. I am refurbishing the mini seat struts on my M3
and as a result need to find new fasteners. There are two
types that are used. One without caps (#1) which seemed
readily available and one with caps (#2) which seems a little
hard to find. Anyone have any leads?

There seems to be some from England but I would rather source
locally if possible.

Thanks in advance.

I use Fabory Metrican for my own stash, and for work as well. Because they are a European company, you'll find many of the German, French and Italian fasteners that other countries don't seem to utilize.

The problem is - $50 minimum. For me there seems to be a few years between orders.

Byron,
Their online catalogue is sick. It has everything that I need.
At least I know where I can get them even if I have to
Pay a premium. I'm not giving up yet. The hunt is on.

Who knows? maybe the BMW dealer has them.

Thanks

Thanks Keith.


It's always good to have other suppliers other than the dealers.
Most of my stuff has been sourced across the line. I actually found
all the clips I am looking for. I had to play detective to find the
Part Numbers. Between different vendors and websites most parts
are available. Quite the difference in prices though.

I will give these guys a shout and get prices and
availability from them.

I had a 1988 M3 a few years back. They should have it in their classic department. I remember buying almost everything I wanted from the dealer. I wouldn't use any of the dealers up here though as their pricing is out to the moon!

I find Fastenal does not stock all metric, they can get it, but they bring it in from US. Pacific Fastners has always had everything i have needed in stock. They are on First Ave 2 blocks off Boundry
