Front wheel bearing

Anyone know the price for a front left wheel bearing? Where is the best place to buy? My usual supplier is $190, which seems a bit high to me.

I've seen em for around $140-150, but they are usually cheaper brands.

Call BMA in Cali, see if it would be worth it to ship one here.

I know what you mean. I just bought a '89 325i. I hate rust, not to mention I'm going to need one new wheel bearing maybe two. http://www.maxbimmer.com/forums/showthread.php?t=89632 thats why I hate rust. Good luck though, hope you can find something cheap. When you find the cheapest quality bearing, let me know.

Thanks Ty

dont let it get to you, the bearing is easy to change, it could be worst.

That's the thing, nothing that goes wrong is hard and worth the time. It's all simple, and time consuming. Right now I have to do the wheel bearing, and fan clutch. Now if I blew a hole through the block, now that means I can replace it with something nice!

E30 4 ME, I'll let you know. I'm gonna stop by Part Source tonight.

A few money shifts and im sure that would take care of your problem.
