FYI, Schmeidmann's sells the Lester version, exact same as Abrahams, but for less money.

Interesting... That's the only wing that could be called an "LTW"

Any data to support this? Not doubting you by any means, simply wondering.

I am close to pulling the trigger on the Abrahams wing, but if this is true, ill reconsider.

I can't tell you I have proof, but I've seen from others orders/boxes/documentation that it is.
Any doubts just email them to confirm.

I'll probably just order the cheapest one that I think is from Lester the molester and see what happens.

Look up the "definitive LTW wing thread" on the other popular Bimmer forum. I believe one of the European guys on the forum said that Abrahams and Schmeidmanns sources their wings from the exact same factory in Europe and a few guys compared and they are the same. The advantage to Abrahams is they are in the US and have them in stock, which gets you the product faster. Schmiedmanns ships direct from Europe which takes a couple weeks, so it just comes down to what you value.
