Aftermarket Replacement m sport shock?

I've got a 2005 Z4 2.5 with the M sport suspension. My front right strut has a slight leak. I'd like to replace it. Is there a non OEM replacement? Rather than switching out all of them I'd like to replace just the single one. My local suspension shop said there are no non-oem Replacements and to get a new oem one has to be ordered from Germany as there are none in stock in North America and its $$$.

Check out Pelican parts, but you will probably want to replace both. You will get some weird handling with two different aged struts.

Obviously, you want to do it on the cheap. Replacing one will probably be ok. I've done that on a sedan before.

Never a good idea to only change one....
