I just did a check against Tischer on spark plugs for my X3 and they are the exact same price. And Tischer is 100% legit.

I clicked on the link and found a "Contact Us" link. That page showed this address:
BMWParts4Cheap
1715 Hacienda Drive
Vista, CA 92081
which is the address for (Mossey) BMW of Vista, a local certified BMW dealer. The owner of the domain is listed as Mossey Company, which own dealerships in San Diego for just about every make made. Based on this, I would say yes, it's probably legit. And good to know, I just may be able to save on shipping by picking up locally!

i did call the guys in bmwparts4cheap and they said that the site is just another website for Mossey BMW. I found this a bit odd - why would dealer have yet another website to sell the same parts Thus i decided to ask here.
well lets see how will it go. I placed order for trim parts for my X3 -total is 50% off local BMW dealer (even with shipment).

BMW of Silver Springs (MD) (formerly Tischer BMW) has had an online parts presence as getbmwparts.com (and trademotion.com) for at least two years. They apparently do a ton of business that way as they are sponsors on several BMW forums, including Bimmerfest, and have had group buys on some parts. They're mentioned frequently in threads as the source of parts. I've personally bought hundreds of dollars of BMW parts from them for both of our cars, including oil change kits and BMW Lifestyle items, and I've recommended them frequently.

I recently found the lowest price yet on a BMW OEM strut bar and Aero Side Skirts for my Z4 M from tomkinsonbmwparts.com. Tomkinson BMW is also a certified BMW dealer in Fort Wayne, IN.

Someone had posted in some forum that they lived near Tischer but that to get the lower prices they had to order online. It may have something to do with over-the-counter parts sold by a BMW dealer have to be charged at MSRP or near-MSRP, while Internet sales for those same parts aren't bound by the same restriction.

Update:
the bmwparts4cheap.com is legit. I got my order as expected all bmw original parts. on time, no issues.

I needed to replace 11 61 7 501 566 and Ryan (from the bmw) emailed me the list of all parts that i need while we were on the phone i could not write them down. I appreciated that.

Funny:
they were waiting for the some bolts/screws to arrive from PA before shipping my order to me ( NJ) %)

Since I live less than 30 miles from (Mossey) BMW of Vista, I contacted bmwparts4cheap.com by e-mail and asked them if I could pick up parts locally. They never responded.
