is that really your primary consideration when modding your car?

anyway - OEM will always be most expensive, but have you considered used? yeah, rare, but not impossible to find. Also, I'm pretty sure you could find somebody stateside who could order those parts for you, and also be aware that you don't neccesarily need all of it (like the motorized flap, which you can't use without the CSL ECU anyway).

although, the replica GB seems like a better deal, for something that's 99% the same.
