My rear trunk latch broke this week. The right top corner of the latch separated from the latch connector inside. There is now a 1 inch by 1 inch corner missing from the latch handle. The latch is only partially working and I am afraid it will jam shut if not repaired. I contacted Morton's BMW and was told that my Pinnacle Extended Warranty would not cover this repair. They are contacting BMW to see if BMW will give me partial coverage as a good customer and because my factory warranty expired only last November and I have approx. 30,000 miles on the odometer. They estimate the rear trunk replacement at $800 and hope that BMW will cover half. Any suggestions? Has anyone been approved for this repair from Pinnacle? Should I just put the money towards a Millenhaus latch assembly since the BMW latch has had problems? Anyone with experience with the Millenhaus latch? How hard is it to install and what was the actual cost, including shipping? Thanks. John Hieronymus

I would go with the Millenhaus, or the other one that seems to now be available. Replacing with a known bad design instead of an improved one just does not make much sense if you have to pay even half, which is more than the better design.

Dave: Thanks. What other latch are you referring to? I am only aware of the Millenhaus aftermarket replacement. John

The Millenhaus kit is $339 + $10 for shipping to the lower 48. Yes - we do ship outside the US.

Shipping is via UPS ground - UPS says "3 to 5 days" to deliver, but I did have one take 8 days to be delivered. We can ship faster or by different carrier, but it does cost more (actual costs only).

We've had most of our customers write back with their impressions. It's posted to the Millenhaus forum in the Vendors section here, on our web site and a few threads here and there in this forums. Site is at http://millenhaus.com

You can also see the installation instructions at the web site - see what all is involved and be ready for it.

To order - just send an email to me at "lt-bits 'at' kc7zru 'dot' net" .

I accept paypal and money orders.

Yup - lifetime warranty against breakage :thumb:
