Do you drive your car so everyone can see that gangsta lean to the right??

OR......

Do you drive your car to hit the apex and apply full throttle out? At the track

Anybody else rev match to downshift or Heel Toe every decreasing radius corner like I do?

Would you like to but haven't the faintest? We all start somewhere. You Auto's could learn a thing here too.

Proper driving techniques can also help you out of some rough driving situations. I can't drive comfortably anymore unless I'm at 9-3. When I went into a drift (DSC on) after a 50mph "accident avoidence manuever" I'm glad I knew how to handle it. Of course like anything worth attaining, practice helps.

I have not bought yet from Germain but with a price lookup and comparison, they seem to be along the lines of North Haven. Crown's pricing is sometimes cheaper than Tischer and North Haven. I have purchased from all three before.

bmwpartzdirect.com
BMW of North Haven, CT

bmwpartsoutlet.com
BMW of Schererville, IN

realbmwparts.com
Germain BMW of Naples, FL

getbmwparts.com
Tischer BMW of Silver Spring, MD

parts.crownauto.com
Crown BMW of Greensboro, NC


Here are some OE and Aftermarket online retailers that I have also purchased from:

pelicanparts.com
bimmerspecialist.com
autohausaz.com
bavauto.com
bimmerworld.com
bmpdesign.com

Currently as of this revised/updated post (Jan 18, 2010) of post #166 above , Germain BMW is the cheapest followed by Tomkinson BMW. For sensors always go genuine, unless you know the OEM. Towards the bottom are OEM and aftermarket parts. My advice is to shop around and make these places work for your business and some of the OEM/aftermarket places will match prices against each other. Online dealerships change pricing so double check your parts and prices across the sites. I have noticed that some dealerships utilizing the trademotion.com system do a flat percentage on parts across the board and even in one particular instance a while back I noticed a price difference depending on the part itself. However, generally most are a flat percentage difference across the board. Also, be aware of the any that may charge handling fees or high prices in shipping.

I'd like to add that some parts are bundled by BMW into a kit that's given its own BMW part number (e.g. the Cold Weather CCV package) and some websites create their own kit bundles (e.g. VCG). Make sure you know what's in the kit first, and there's at least one site that was charging more for the "special price" kit than for the individual parts (hey $15 is $15).

Finally, check out the comments here on customer service. The cheapest price isn't fun when you get promises that are never delivered. And read the small print like "upon an approved account" - whatever that means.

Thank you for that list of dealers. It turns out that Tomkinson is cheaper than Tischer (which is apparently now known as BMW of Silver Spring), and as Tomkinson is more centrally located, shipping from them is cheaper and faster than from Germain, even though they're slightly more expensive than Germain. bmwmercedesparts.com seems to have the best parts prices overall.

You might also add ECStuning.com to the list.

Good point about BMW vs. OEM vs. aftermarket parts. I've been disappointed a couple times getting parts from BavAuto as they seem to ship a lot of OEM stuff without disclosing what you're getting beforehand (which is something ECS does and allows you to compare).
