Best non-OEM Clears??

OK >>> I've read many of the post saying that the OEM clears are the only way to go, but also very expensive and difficult to get. I've got an '04 330i and need to get an entire set of clears on the car. Is there an aftermarket supplier (or e-bay dealer) that anyone has had good luck with? If not aftermarket, what is the cheapest source to get the OEM's?

Has anyone pursued the group-buy on these facelift OEM's to get at a more reasonable price? I'm open to any suggestions as I know this question has gotten a lot of coverage on the forum.

Thanks,
.........Sandman_325

id stick with oem, you pay for it now but atleast it'll last you longer than any other kind you get. Stay away from ebay, fitment is horrible and the seals start to leak. As you can tell, I learned the hard way.....nothing but oem from now on.

Definitely. Just go for OEM. I regret spending any money on non-OEM clears. You'd actually save afterall.
