Even better than Tischer. It's $404 from them plus $175 for shipping. My buddy uses his "discount" for me so that's probably why it's cheaper. But still most dealers are probably the cheapest since you don't pay for shipping.

thebmwpartstore.com - the best place to source OEM BMW parts online - has the bumper for $388. I highly suspect shipping will be less than Tischer, as well.

Currently, no online OEM BMW place can beat thebmwpartstore pricing on most parts.

As for local dealers being cheaper due to no shipping fees? - Not necessarily. Most dealer pricing near metropolitan areas is much inflated vs what you pay online. Not to mention you get raped with tax.

Wow that's a awesome price. I've called almost 10 dealers in my area and none of them will go less then $600. I almost want you to pick one up for me too and ship it this way lol!

^ I was just going to make some calls and ask about price-matching.
Post up what you ultimately decide. And if you do call any back, let them know you might buy 2 for a deal (I will take one).

I tried all the following:

Crevier
Irvine
South Bay
Van Nuys
Bob Smith (Calabasas)
Rusnak (Westlake)
Long Beach
Century West (Hollywood)
Santa Monica
Beverly Hills

All were above $600. If you want to call again maybe you'll get lucky and they will tell you something different. If so, let me know!

Okay, will do. Slammed with crap this week and leaving for Chicago on Friday but I will make the rounds first thing next Tuesday after the holiday. Keep you posted, apologies if you're in a hurry.
