Wiper inserts in California are from $23 to $50 out the door

what kind of parts department doesn't answer their phone?
PARTS GUY DOES NOT ANSWER PHONE:
Stevens Creek BMW 800-486-2171 http://www.scbmw.com

PARTS GUY ANSWERS PHONE:
BMW of Fremont 888-208-9746 http://www.bmwoffremont.com

The parts guy at BMW of Fremont was VERY helpful (in utter contrast to the known fraudsters at Stevens Creek BMW).

Here is what he told me about the BMW wiper blade inserts:
61-61-8-217-711 is $23 each + CA tax ~= $50 for the pair
61-61-0-154-441 is $10.50 each + CA tax ~= $23 for the pair

These prices are reasonable but still, absolutely not even close in terms of percentages (hundreds of percent off) from the prices you guys have been quoting.
