Recent windscreen purchases?

Hey guys - a good buddy of mine got a new six last year and I told him he really needed to get the windscreen. He went to the dealer and of course he was quoted $600+. I told my buddy I would find him a better deal.

The best deal I could find direct from a BMW dealer was our usual Tenafly at $413 plus $17 shipping. http://www.shopbmwusa.com/PRODUCT/35...nterid=7635001

I did find a fleabay listing for $370 with free shipping purportedly from Sun Motors BMW in PA, but I went direct to their website and their listed price was $500+...? Anybody buy from this ebay seller before (they have a high rating)?

Let me know if you guys have gotten a better deal or bought before from ebay seller "sunmotorsbmwparts" Thanks, Greg

At the suggestion of many on this forum I ordered my windscreen while the car was on the boat coming over Ordered OEM from Germany cuz that was the only one I saw with the case (which I wanted) total $430. Came before the car.
Driving difference is amazing. Wind noise is essentially gone ( @up to 75 mph so far) and temp retention huge. (Driven top down at 35 degree sunny day !)
It is a MUST.
BTW off the car the thing is quite flimsy so I would recommend something to store it safely in. You can find the case on this side but they're usually looking for an extra $60 or so which is ridiculous once you see it.

Greg I bought from Sun Motors via eBay 2 weeks ago- same price- and it arrived brand new in new condition in what looked like original packaging. It didn't come with a storage bag- just the windscreen. John

Looked around and ordered one from the local dealer. Since I am a customer got the original BMW part with case for about $450 + tax

That is better than I could find online anywhere for a new part. I will sell it someday if I don't leave it to my future grandchildren.
