Anyone know where I can buy these seal cover trim pieces???
Looks like matte shadowline trim, part number 51138208499, and item #13 according to RealOEM (diagram below and picture from ECS Tuning).

Click to view on RealOEM.



If that's the correct part, you can find it at pretty much any of the popular online BMW parts vendors. A quick price check shows:

Husker Parts: $96.16
The BMW/MINI Part Store: $98.63
BMW Part Source: $106.84

Those are prices for the piece new; you might be able to find it used or cheaper elsewhere.

How would I search that exact part on eBay I keep trying but I get nothing
I'd probably search for the exact part number (51138208499) to ensure it's the correct part and fitment for your vehicle.

Looks like prices on eBay are still higher than other places, though. You might have some luck in the E46Fanatics classifieds section, specifically the "Exterior" forum and the "Parting Out" forum. Might be worth looking into.

Thank you for all your help all this information is very useful
You’re more than welcome. I’d have a hard time justifying $100 for that trim piece, as well. Another place you might consider looking is a local salvage yard. Might have some luck with BMRParts.com, as well, if you decide to go that route.
