08' 528 XI rear reflector question please.

Does anyone know where I can get a drivers side rear reflector other then the dealer who wanted 25 for the part and 50 to put it in. And Ebay which has it listed for some where around 40. I thought I saw something like that on this site but cant recall where. Thanks anyone for your time with this.

try these places:

Burger Motorsports
ModBargains
Trinity Motorsport
Pelican Parts
Umnitza

95% of the time ebay sellers claim its OEM and it really isn't. If you buy from ebay make sure to verify BMW part number.

+1000 it is a simple matter of sliding it one way (outward I think) then unclipping using a small flathead screwdriver. Not complicated at all. You can find them on ebay, or getbmwparts.com or ecstuning.com will have them for a discount
