Who has cheaper Genuine OEM BMW parts.

It seems like http://www.bmwmercedesparts.com/ has the best prices around for oem parts compared to other online bmw dealers.
Tischer, North Haven BMW and others are competitve but http://www.bmwmercedesparts.com/ seems to have best. And at these prices it does not make sense to buy aftermarket.

Any other ones we should know about. Genuine BMW only please.

+1 I went to mine and asked them to match the price of the best deal I could find online and they did. Their list price for the BMW performance strut bar was $349.98 and they dropped it down to $267.

my extensive collection of online dealers have found currently (as of this post) that bmwmercedesparts.com aka Husker Auto Group (Lincoln, NE) to have the lowest prices. I just placed an order...we'll see how the service stacks up to the competition.

Tisher for prices....but shipping kills. Local BMW dealer if you have a BMW CCA membership. 10% off price and no shipping. Tisher is great for big ticket items. Small parts, local BMW dealer is normally better, no wait on shipping or charges. BMW CCA is good for the Roundel Magazine also besides the CCA card. Reminds me, I need to renew my membership.

And nothing beats going to the local BMW dealership.....got to sit in an Alpina B7 last time I was there. Had free coffee and donuts while I was looking at the new M3. The BMW dealership is like going to a museum to me sometimes.

Good prices based on what I've bought from various vendors. They have a phone number to call as well.

Shipping kills you on the small items though.

BMWpartsSource has pretty cheap prices and really cheap shipping costs. TBH a great supplier. If you need something small like wiper blades like how i did, I'd just go to the dealership.

I like only OE parts and so far, it seems www.BMWpartsSource.com has the cheapest prices. Another reason I prefer to use them is that they ARE an actual BMW dealership and not a third-party vendor. To me this translates into up-to-date parts and dealer-like support. It also means that you are almost guaranteed genuine and not counterfeit parts. They are also in a neighboring state and I get my stuff next day as well.

Plus you get a parts warranty when you order from a dealer if you have an official invoice.

This. They edged out Tischer by a decent amount, whom I had been using before. I'll have to input some P/N's at BMWMercedesParts.com to see how they fare.
