So what do you guys think? Are the OEM parts really worth the extra money? The fronts are 155 and the rear 389 at my dealer...pretty steep if you ask me.

I have my reservations of putting japanese crap parts on my Bimmer, but still, the money difference is huge.

Any thoughts/experiences?

Yeah, that's the other problem. With today's exchange, it would be like $450 from them, plus shipping. It works out to be better if I just get it from my dealer.

Alrighty, I guess you guys made your point. Maybe I'll get them soon, maybe wait till spring....hmmm...

I know there've been a few OEM sets for sale on the E46Fanatics Classifieds board, check there.
