OEM Bimmer Parts - Wow

My first order with OEM Bimmer Parts yesterday, CVV/Hoses a VANOS pressure line. FedEx guy just came to the door and I was surprised to see someone as I wasn't expecting any packages. Turns out OEM Bimmer Parts sent everything NEXT DAY AIR for free! Wow, I was happy about free shipping, but didn't know would be Next Day. Maybe that is irregular, but a great first experience.

Max is an awesome guy. For OEM parts, I'd be conflicted to go anywhere else. Glad you had a good experience!

Yeah but...

"Non-OEM Bimmerparts" just doesn't have the same ring to it!

Yes they're OEM. The difference between Oembimmerparts and other vendors is that at Oembimmmerparts they don't charge you for shipping if the the product is over $50.

That's not the only reason it's cheaper. There are other sites that don't charge for freight after a certain $ amount. They are definitely OEM parts. I believe Max just doesn't hike up the prices like our other vendors do. I'm assuming his profit margin is slimmer than sites like ecstuning, authausaz, etc. I just ordered a pair of oem wheel bearings from them today. My brother ordered a pair a few weeks ago. Definitely my go-to site when ordering parts.

"oem"

Just keep in mind that an Original Equipment Mfg. implies what you got on a *new* BMW, however, could be different from a "BMW" stamped part in quality and other subtle differences. So, do your homework. OEM could be an aftermarket part made in China by the OEM but not something BMW would put on their cars with a warranty.

Max doesn't sell crap parts. The site tells you what brand they are, if they're not BMW original.

I've ordered from there several times, never a disappointment!

On pricing... Max doesn't have a glossy catalog to fill your mailbox 12 times a year, nor does he have a couple race teams to support.

All of Max's parts are the real deal OEM manufacturers that BMW uses. As Jeff said (JVR), they are labeled on the website if they are an alternate brand or manufacturer. I don't order anywhere else when it comes to OEM BMW parts. Best service, prices and parts.

OEM Bimmer Parts - Wow

After all the glorious reviews I placed an order for Meyle HD cabs. It was a couple of months ago actually. I opted for free shipping (3-5 business days). From you guys I heard about super fast free shipping. No such luck for me, took exactly a week to receive the order. I'm not complaining, because that's exactly what the description says: 3-5 days, so it's fine. But my experience with others quality vendors has always been 2 or maximum 3 days with free shipping. And I never got any tracking number and shipment notification emailed to me. Usually I get that right after the order has been shipped. I mean it was not a bad experience, but not the best either. Will stick with my other vendors but if the price is competitive might order from oem Bimmer parts again.

Re: OEM Bimmer Parts - Wow

I've used Max for a while now. I recommend him to all my customers who want OEM parts. Best pricing, best support, best shipping.

Nobody is perfect, but Max has always been top notch for me and quite a few others. I wouldnt send people his way if I didn't trust him.

He sells a lot of aftermarket parts by Meyle, Febi, Bilstein, Karlyn (would never buy), Ocap (never even heard before), JT Design, Uro (stay away), Graf, etc, etc...
