BMW parts pricing.
What's the deal with the price structure on BMW parts?
I went to the BMW dealer in town yesterday because I needed it yesterday, and they seem to charge up to 50% over Realoem and Tischer's selling price.
What's the deal?
For instance, I bought Belt Tensioner 11287530314, RealOEM shows $101.95, Tischer shows MSRP of $123.98
BMW of Sarasota charged me $148.78
I understand ordering parts is cheaper, but sometimes you just need something right away.
Ironically, the invoice I got with the parts says "competitive parts pricing!"
When I asked them who they are competitive with, he couldn't tell me.
