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
Thanks for the update.

No brake shoes in the UK either.

It was Pidcocks BMW in Long Eaton who had the problem getting the Brake shoes, Initially the report from Germany was that the shoes were going to be made to order, after 5 weeks and numerous emails that didn't achieve anything we gave up and Pidcocks gave me a refund. Dale the parts guy at Pidcocks was fantastic calling me frequently with updates, service over and above any I'd received before.

You must have an internal link to Pidcocks, drop Dale a line I'm sure he'll let you know what the notes from BMW say.

Motorworks sent me a note yesterday saying the indicator stems were no longer available. I'm heading over to Pidcocks this morning to see if they can order me a replacement.
