Prothane rear subframe bushings?

I'm getting ready to replace these and I started searching after getting a quote from Powerflex for $299.

Has anybody tried these for $179?

I know you often get what you pay for, but they're both urethane, they both have steel inserts, and look very similar...the one thing I do notice is that it appears as though Prothane's front and rear bushings are two piece and Powerflex's front are two piece and rears are one piece?

Are these new to market and Powerflex didn't have any competition aso we get hit with the BMW tax or is it an inferior product?

Prothane...


Powerflex...
