I’ve been looking online at dealer parts. Only unpainted (primed) plastics.
I got into a little spill after some guy merged into me last week. Just need new plastic but it’s been tough finding grey/black from the ‘17 model.

I ran into a similar problem with a 2010 K1300GT. My dealer told me that once BMW exhausts the initial production run of painted parts, rather than do another painted production run, they often only offer primed parts. At that point, you have to find painted parts on the used market or you have to find someone who can custom match your paint. I don't mean someone who has the original paint already premixed, I mean someone who has the computer tech to custom match the paint on an undamaged section of your damaged part or the paint on an adjacent part. The good news is that paint matching computer tech is pretty amazing; in my case, they matched the paint so well, I couldn't tell the difference between the newly painted part and parts that had seen ten years of weather.
