Mike @ Maranello is great for parts!

Although, anyone who's been to him already know this heh. Just picked up a pair of wipers, forum discounted, essentially for half the price of what other dealers are selling for. Just thought I'd give his name some more visibility, as his prices for all parts seem to be very reasonable (and will return to him for more stuff as I see fit!).

Agree with the original post. Just don't be a douche by trying to have your dealership price match Mike's prices. Their dealership takes heat from BMW of Canada because other dealerships will complain. The last thing we need is to lose is a great source for discounted OE parts and accessories.

Yep...don't price match with other dealerships. We don't want to lose a dealership that actually helps its customers.

Nope, no price-matching taking place here at all. I just called two dealers for prices, thanked them, then called Mike, and went over to Maranello and picked them up.

Mike FTW!! been buying from him (usual maintenance parts) for last 2 years. In most cases, even cheaper than ordering from the US!

Do you guys pick up the parts from Mike and then install yourselves? Is it possible for things that aren't such a DIY to pick up the parts from Mike and then get them installed (for a fee obviously) at your local BMW dealer? Might be a silly question but just wondering

I pick up the parts, and let my mechanic (Ivo) install the parts.

You can get the dealer to do it for you, they love taking your money

How can I contact Mike on this forum?
Can he provide performance BMW parts too (intake, exhaust, etc.)?

I just picked up the M3 performance exhaust from Mike. I ended up having the dealership install it as well as he is also able to get reasonable install times/prices. They only charged me for 1.5 hours of work which is pretty much the going install time. And the deal on the exhaust was amazing, within a few dollars of Tisher BMW in the US.
