Mtech if OEM is likely $800-$1000.

Try and source a Canadian performance shop and go from there. Otherwise, tischer is your best price.

Call Mike at Maranello BMW. He might be able to hook you up with a deal.

Mike set me up and his price beat the US fuss when you factor shipping and duty. My experience is that you would be better to buy the OEM Euro spec M tech kit and sell the sides and front. That way you get a better overall price and what you recoup from selling the extra pieces will almost pay for the rear bumper.

When you call parts at Maranello just ask for Mike. There is only two guys working there, and one of them is Mike.

You will find that the price difference between the whole kit vs just the rear is not that huge. In the sense that it's best to buy the whole kit, sell the sides and front, and that way you got your rear for less than anywhere else.

That is what several people have done on these forums when wanting OEM M-Tech. Also others have posted asking who would want the front or sides, and they have split the M-Tech kit and the cost. Also ending up cheaper than just buying the rear.

Takes effort to find other to buy the rest of the parts, but you do savce money in the end.

To my understanding you can call them and arrange it. Otherwise, you would simply ship to a PO BOX at the border, and just drive across at Niagara Falls and pick up what you need. Factoring in gas, its still cheaper than shipping across the border, especially if its a large item.

Try asking (by posting) if another member will go 60/40 with you. You keep rear and they get front/sides and work something out.

That may be cheaper and at least you'll have OEM parts. Lots of guys here who are interested.

what do you guys think of this price? called up another dealership and they said they will give me mtech + 335IS diffuser painted and installed with taxes in for $1950

i wasnt initially thinking of spending so much but just thought i would find out if this was a good deal for the OEM setup.

ideally i would have liked to spend $1000 or less on the mtech replacement.

IMO $2000 on a bumper and diffuser is a joke. OEM or not that's just too much $$.

Put up a WTB thread and source it that way. Used is fine and with a fresh paint job you can still come in at your $1000 budget.

Stealerships are a joke.
