Where to buy OEM BMW parts (no dealerships)

I'm looking for a few OEM parts for my 92 525i, where can I get parts, cheaper then the dealership, but still the exact OEM part?

Preferably within the GTA....

Any BMW-specific shop can do it, I typically go to Lakeside Motors here in Scarborough and have them order stuff in. Every single time I have gone to the dealer I left pissed off, so I'm permanently turned off.

So, whatever's closest to you up there in the boonies.

I got the same question as Nelson, I need some OEM parts.

To all the people that replied with recomendations, I got a question.
Anyone can get BMW parts, but we are talking about below retail prices.
Chuck's Auto, for example, charges retail for the parts.

Anyone that works for bmw dealer can get parts discounted at 50% off.On the other hand it may be the risk.Lets say the same person drives 528i and he wants parts for an M3 .They will know for sure that he's getting it for someone else.Now some places dont care and some do.It all depends how good you are with a manager and their staff.

Shops get 20-25% percent off dealer retail prices.

I usually get my uncle to order parts for me, and he'll get them to send it COD instead of putting it on his account. Dealers dont give good discounts.

to my understanding bmw doesn't give a very good discount to shops.... i think the highest they give is 25% (all based on quantity)
