That would be probably really hard since most if not all BMW Performance parts were liquidated...

This is similar...

the price will now continue to climb back up slowly due to their recent move into the "hard to find" category.

Yes, but not looking to be low-balled.

No one can expect to pay what they were going at right before they sold out....supply and demand is a beaut.

My Ride: '01 330i
When I ordered mine from Patrick a bmwpartssource a couple of weeks ago he said that was one of the last two he had, and those were the last two available in the country... I'm glad I managed to get one, it's a gorgeous piece of hardware. Aradeath is sitting on one rare item at this point...

I found one today for $292 and can not decide to pull the trigger. I have the aluminum one, and it's nice being able to remove just the bar to access the valve cover...I wonder if the Performance one is realistically any stiffer.
