Not looking good. anybody else having similar problems with parts?

Okay Rob, here's the real story.
Just because the parts aren't currently available, doesn't mean they are NLA.
Your dealer is wrong.
I checked my sources at BMW AG and NA, and the brake shoes (34212311019) are not in stock in Germany or the USA, ( can't tell on the UK, no access) but are NOT listed as being NLA with BMW, just not currently available.
The same goes with the turn signal mounts.
All are just out of stock, except for the 63231244020, as there are 24 pieces in USA at the Nazareth Pennsylvania warehouse.
SOoooo, you might want to talk to your dealer about that as they may be reading the notes wrong from BMW
