Part number history

Can anyone tell me what the previous part numbers were for an 08 1200GT air intake muffler (air box) ?. I know what the most recent one is for the updated box but I would like to know what, if any previous number was used. The part number I am curious about is 1711 7705 470-02. thanks

Rick, you need to get your part numbers right. There are 11 digits in the BMW part number system, so the "-02" will not bring up anything. Each different part gets its own number, not a "-02" for a newer version of the part (AFAIK). The "correct" number grouping is like "xx-xx-x-xxx-xxx" and each string of x's stands for a particular hierarchy in the overall BMW part number system. It won't matter to the part number search on the fiche, but it might if you use that grouping as a general 'net search.

Although you didn't mention it, a search of the online BMW part number system (I use by force of habit, but there are others), does not bring up the number "1711 7705 470" no matter how the spaces are arranged, or if they aren't there at all. shows the correct current part number and name are 13717705470 Intake muffler.
