Hi Ricky , I have the same boots with the same cheesy buckles. When you changed then did you have to go through the gortex inner to fix the new rivets on the sidi buckles ? If so won't this ruin the waterproofing ?
 
Heine Gerike sell a boot which is almost identical to the BMW boot & they sell spare buckles which I think you will find fit the BMW's




:beer:
 
I don't have a problem with the buckles on mine (apart from the bottom ones opening themselves sometimes).
My problem is that the Goretex is broken somewhere in the toe area and they therefore leak. Cannot find anyone to fix them.
I've just bought the Hein Gericke "Toureg" to replace them. £135 can't go wrong at that price.
