Anyone know of a BMW dealer Bolivia please.

I am in Santa Cruz , Bolivia at the new BMW dealership there called' Andar Motors'
They are very nice people indeed and are working on my bike but they do not have the 'rear wheel axle flange' in stock (BMW part..REF 33117699631)that I urgently need...does anyone know of a parts stockist in Bolivia that may be able to get one quickly PLEEEAASE...
Many thanks

Mark, I'm sorry to hear that you're having problems, and I'm also sorry that I can't help with locating a part for you. I can only suggest either contacting other dealerships in South America and getting them to ship it to you or contacting a company like Motorworks in the UK.

Motorworks are experienced in shipping stuff, I've used them a couple of times and not only are they quick and efficient they really know their BMW bikes too.

If you really get stuck I'm certain they can get what you need:

Motorworks - BMW Motorcycle Spares - home

Good luck

Thank you very much...I'll check them out.
I've since heard that the part is now off 'back order' but shipping could still take 8/9 days so am still looking for a quicker alternative...
Cheers again, Mark.

otherwise you could get something shipped from argentina or chile.

but hey man, why not just hang out there for a while? you can be pretty sure the part will be delayed, by customs or whatever. and certainly any dealings with them will pass more pleasantly if you're patient.

Here - São Paulo, Brasil - there is a dealer - Caltabiano BMW Motorrad Oscar Freire | A moto que você quer está aqui, perto de você - that have this flange in 2 or 3 days. If time is a priority for you, you may come to sao paulo, buy it (almost U$500,00) and be back to santa cruz at the next day. If you need assistance or a place to sleep, you cold stay at my home.
Think about.
