Default Where to buy oem injector o-rings?

Need new o rings for my injectors and since bmw has raised their prices to around $5 an o-ring, no way in hell I'm paying $60 for a set of 12.

I know there are plenty of alternatives out there that don't have issues, but I'm having trouble finding a reputable source where to purchase quality o rings from. Would have just gone through MEPEH, but he seems to have gone under...

Any recommendations would be appreciated.

I have used ones... take them somewhere and try to find an exact replica just like others have with the CPV

They are just an o-ring. Just need to figure material type, outer dia and inner dia.

Oh yes. Pretty straightforward. I guess more what I'm asking is if anyone has a source that I can just order from where they already know the dimensions.

Not looking to have to have any down time with the car given my work schedule so it's a whole lot easier if I can just order and have them delivered to me since I wouldn't have to take them out of the car and figure all those things out.

Worst case I could just order one from the dealer and get dimensions and determine the material, but going that route, and recommendations on types of places that I can pop in locally and acquire the correct o-rings? I'd imagine a plumbing store would use a different material than OE which is designed to function under heat and has exposure to fuel.

Most cities will have an industrial O ring supplier or two. Also, I bought all sorts of Orings and injector parts from a company dr. something. I'm not home and I can't remember the name. I did a search and found all sorts of companies that do injector cleaning but I couldn't find the company I used.

I would think that injectors and parts are standard. Might have more luck looking for Bosch injector o-rings vs BMW.

$5 for one o-ring? You could probably get a pack of 10 for that much elsewhere. That BWM markup, holy smokes.

And to me, Phoenix Yellow and Laguna Seca Blue are two of the best ways to differentiate your M3 experience from the norm.
