Front struts

Does anyone know where i can find struts for my 330 xi that won't empty my wallet? I have been looking all over the place but everything is so expensive!

Bilsteins are too expensive for you?
I mean you do own a BMW not a Cavalier right?

Bilsteins are the cheapest quality strut/shock you can get. There are cheaper ones but I wouldn't trust them on such an important part of the car.

The will be far cheaper than OEM replacements.

Also, no offense but what Jason said is true. You bought one of the most expensive cars to maintain, don't expect anything to be cheap.
