I'm curious did the bundle of savings equate to purchasing from US dealer?

the markup in Canadian dealers is obscene! i've been eying a few parts...but I can't ship up from US and the local dealers are way way overpriced.

i did the math and he beat every online price after you just factor in the shipping.

i have no idea what the brokerage and taxes would be on the part after it comes to Canada..

oh well that makes me feel kinda retarded..
i originally ordered an abs sensor from bimmerspecialist.com but after i gave them my vin they informed me they did not have the right part i needed and gave me a part number.. The only website that had one was esctuning.com (those guys got almost everything) and they called it a pulse generator so different name made me think it did something different.. meh w/e

The dealer originally wanted 297 + tax
Mike hooked it up

This is good news! Glad to hear everything went smoothly. I'm waiting on the tire pricing.

propr'one, why don't you just pm him and ask if you're so curious?
