I got mine from my local BMW Zentrum. I paid around 40 euro's each I think. I know they have gone up in price. I think they are around 68-ish euros each now.

I almost always buy my parts from my dealer bc they always give me 20% off their retail price plus I don't have to pay the GErman VAT +19% sales tax (MwsT). The parts come the very next day and I always know I am getting teh real deal - and not some knock off part.

These four rear bushings really transform the way the car drives. There is really no down side to them - than a slightly harder ride on rough cobble stone roads. But on pavement the ride is the same. The steering works so much more precisely and the rear end doesn't squirm around. No long will you need to avoid man hole covers or rough pavement on the road... the car just soaks that stiff up now. And the rear end is MUCH more solid and you can trust that the rear end won't step out when you go WOT in mid corner.
