Differential bearings

Okay, not that I need them but why are these so hard to find? With all the 1 Series cars out there you would think getting these would not be a problem. I have looked around and no one seems to have them. I don't get it...

My guess is the manufacturer has a deal to sell only to BMW, and its a very individual bearing no-one else makes?

I did find a source in the UK but not being able to get it here in the US is crazy. I have not asked a dealer yet but I would imagine you can but I'll bet it's expensive.

Yes it will be expensive because they will only sell the complete diff...

If its the bearingskit.co.uk guy then he doesnt have them..

If its Kevin at Birds Auto then its because they make there own tapered roller bearings to replace the oem ball race type ones...

If I remember correctly I found the early 335 used regular roller bearings but they had slight different dimension. I almost ordered them to see in person.

I heard there was some guy that had a kit that changed them over to roller bearings. Not sure what post it was or who had them.
