Bma parts vs Autohauz

Anyone notice BMA parts raising their prices a wee bit too much? I used to get all my parts from them, now it's Autohauz for me. A lot cheaper. I noticed they hired a new manager now, before that it was a nice lady by the name of Christine who was so helpful, and now, that guy. After they hired him prices just skyrocketed. I emailed him questioning why so high ? That it was the reason e46fanatics bought so much from them, and he replied with an arrogant email. Sucks..but oh well.

Bma has been cheaper for me with the spece30 5% off code.

Its been active for a long time and I'm sure everyone uses it, maybe that's why they raised prices.

I think for certain vehicle model's they've hiked it up but for e30's it's been relatively the same, only a few parts have gone up in price. But I will check out Autohauz as well. Have you tried rockauto or any of the other one's?

RMEuropean.com seems to have the cheapest prices for a lot of BMW parts. Used to buy from BMAParts. Rockauto seems to have too many shipping charges for a few parts.

Yeah, I used to like rockauto but they've gotten rediculous with their separate warehouse shipping charges. It's not my damn problem if they store their parts in different locations.

I think its a ploy to make up for their cheap prices. One time I wanted to order 2 items and the combined shipping prices almost equals the parts itself, smh.
