Unhappy Trunk latch

I have only scratched the surface of threads mentioning the broken trunk latch problem that some have had, so I would like to ask this community for a shortcut to solving my broken latch problem.
As you that are familiar with this subject, we know that BMW does not offer this part. You either have to buy a complete trunk or the bottom half painted in the proper color.
I seen in one thread that someone had fabricated an aluminum replacement part and I am now asking this community who to ask for this new part. My dealer is in Seattle, WA, Ride West BMW, and they are also wanting to know what I find out about this problem to help their customer base.
Please help.
