www.schmiedmann.com

Great prices, and shipping is fast even though they are international.

^ that.

And for those specific gaskets be sure to get genuine BMW ones. Ask me how I know.

Depending on how far you are from the border, Canadian dealers all sell euro parts.

How so. I buy all my OEM parts at the dealer and it costs me less money than buying them from anywhere else, other than occasionally Schmiedmann.
Yes its cheaper to buy aftermarket from FCP, or non-BMW branded OE parts, but you cant buy those at a dealer.

I have had BMWs for over 40 years and the Canadian Dealer prices for parts has always been far higher than US dealer prices. I recall replacing a 2002 gas tank in parking lot in Connecticut in the early 80s because the price difference was so substantial. A few years ago I looked at style 24 wheels which were in 350 range in the US and well over 700 in Canada. I did order drip rails from the dealer here a few years ago as these cannot be shipped easily, and they were more than twice as expensive. Honestly I do not even look at Canadian Dealers for parts as they are ridiculously expensive, but some times I can be surprised. They were surprisingly the cheapest source for the spark plugs for my S50B30 and for a full set of lug nuts. But I knew the parts guy and he gave me a deal. Unfortunately he does not work at the dealer any more.

Well the prices are probably 1.3x what parts in the US cost, but when you do math involving our peso, duty, and shipping it is cheaper, as a Canadian living in Canada, using Canadian dollars to buy it at the dealer down the street than order it from anywhere else, excluding Schmiedman.
