i'm pretty sure that's as cheap as it gets


also, i'm going to have to give a shout out to Doug @ Turner for otherwise exemplary service assistance and extremely quick replies, dealing with my email query in real time

sadly, th price difference of $461 shipped to $7xx shipped is WAY too high for me to consider OEBMW parts.. even if i don't get an ///M logo, i'm not driving an M car, my vin doesn't say i am, but i 'm more than happy to go around corners faster than one



Places like turner and the like have the kits for $599 plus post or thereabouts

"They are OEM as stated in the listing, OEM means original equipment manufacutre, Which means they are made by the same company that makes them for bmw. In this case TRW. Yes they do include the bushing as well.

confirmation they're the real thing.

ED: since it doesn't include the headlight rod, somewhere like http://www.ecstuning.com/Search/Head...t_Rod/ES66416/ - looks like it's only a $10-$15 item, nothing to stress over or make this any less of a bargain..
