Steering Column?

My steering column needs replacement on my 328xi coupe, was thinking about buying a used one from ebay. Cheaper by half price, than buying a new one at around 600?...good idea? bad idea? Would like to hear your comments.

Here's the used columns I found:

When I turn the steering wheel left or right it clicks, like something loose type feeling. Also had my steering shaft replaced, and actually ever since than its been doing that.

Re: Steering Column?

Well stealer dealer said it was bent or something like that...which I don't know how they didn't notice when they put in a new steering shaft...and even before I had the shaft replaced I didn't have that issue.had to bring it back 3rd time and then they noticed it.

Re: Steering Column?

Will you post some pictures of the column....and isn't your steering wheel on the right hand side in Australia?... puzzled if it would fit correct?
