Best online site to order OEM parts?

I need a few interior tidbits for my car, as well as a set of new wheels and was curious if anyone could recommend a good site for OEM BMW parts that has a good selection of Z4 parts. Looking for reliable, but best prices as well.

www.bavauto.com is not bad. Fair prices and they know their stuff. I think I might have also saw that they price match. I also picked some new OEM items from stores on eBay. I got my oil & cabin fliters more than half off compared to the stealership.

I've had good luck with Bavauto, too. The best thing is their site is very well arranged, you can browse based on your car or plug in part numbers if you already know them, and because it's NH there's no tax and most orders over $150 ship free (unless it is big & heavy - see their site for exceptions). For wheels you might try Discount Tire Direct. Unlike the other sites that advertise everything ever made they actually have stock. Site sponsors here are highly recommended, too. Best bet is to find the parts you are lookng for on RealOEM and then shop for best prices and availability. Good luck and let the savings begin!

Talking Best online site to order OEM parts?

I have had found great prices at ECS Tuning & Bimmer Specialists. Compare the shipping costs for purchase <$150, though to get the best 'total prics/cost' deal.

Happy Parts Hunting!

I choose BAVAUTO

BAVAUTO because:
1 - If I order in the AM for an instock item I will have it the following afternoon/evening (NH is close to CT).
2 - They price match all online competitors.
3 - They have great customer service and knowledge.

That being said...If I was on the west coast Id probably going to AutohausAZ. They appear to have great pricing.

Yark BMW......I actually forgot about them from having ordered some parts for my 07 Z4 when I got it...

Bought from them on Ebay and they pretty much told me to call them anytime I needed any parts and they will give me their best price. By far, the lowest prices anywhere, and shipping is fast even when parts need to be ordered. a good example is the E89 wind deflector (all parts needed for installation) which retails for $580, I am getting it from them for $400 shipped! The listed online prices, are just MSRP, so you have to call them to see if they can offer a better deal..

Personally I deal with John I.
Their Phone # is 419 842 7927

It depends on WHAT you're ordering ...

From the bestlinks thread ...

User-recommended parts suppliers:
http://www.bimmerfest.com/forums/sho...5&postcount=23

Where to buy brake pads (top-4 suppliers)

Canonical list of parts to buy for brakes and suppliers

Best place to get your broken headlight adjusters fixed ...

etc.

Note: If I've had to buy it, you can probably assume I've tried to figure out who the best supplier is....

Rockauto.com has everybody beat. Just ordered a (FSU) blower motor resistor from them, cost less than half of what Bimmer Specialists and Pelican wanted for it, Fed-Ex delivery in 4 days, $46.00. Plugged right in, worked like a charm, they also have the longest warranty's that I've seen online. Will definately order from them again.

Just starting to look for a few parts for my 02 540iA Sport to install over the winter: drivers side mirror, rear cup holders, front seat switch covers, rear spoiler, radio antenna, hood and trunk emblems, wheel rim emblems, front kidney grills (mat black), O2 sensors (behind cat converter). The suggested best outlets will be most helpful but if anyone has suggestions for any of these specific parts, it would be most appreciated.

Since this is an older thread, below are some additional popular/reliable parts vendors you might consider checking out, especially for OE/OEM parts. Over the years, I've bought parts from most on the list and have had good luck with almost all of them.

You might also consider visiting www.bmwpnpc.com for a useful price comparison tool for all of the vendors below. Results are returned in a single browser window, each site to its own tab, OE Genuine BMW prices can be displayed instantly, and prices can be exported for easy spreadsheet creation in Excel. There's a link in my signature to read the forum announcement, as well, if you're interested.

Hope this helps!

Google is your friend
Also checking local Craigslist's car parts listings for someone parting one out
