I bought them from BMW of Newton via eBay for $130 shipped. getBMWParts.com is selling for $140 + shipping.

It takes less than 5 mins to install. Makes it really easy to switch when you get bored.

Here is the old link:

Good. They were 50 miles from me but their price was $2000 better than my local dealer (Open Road BMW <-- avoid this dealership at all cost).

Great looking truck. I hope you match the center mesh grills in black now too, would make it look real mean. The silver mesh grills that are on there now look out of place with the black kidneys. Glad you got the IND reflectors, got mine from there too. Small mod, big difference. Nice job so far.

no they are not illuminated. once you get use to it, you will never look at the paddle shifters again. you just know which one is which.
