Unhappy 261M Wheel Price - from Canada

Just received a call back from a Canadian dealer regarding availability of the 261M wheels. $3350 Canadian Dollars, plus shipping, customs duty/taxes. Available in two weeks but that amounts to about 10% of the value of the car!

If you want them that badly, get a BMW CCA membership, and get your 20% off ordering from a local dealer, plus not have to worry about shipping costs and border holdups. All Boston area dealers give 20% off to members for parts.

The local dealer doesn't have any information on that wheel. Do you know if they will be available as a special order in the U.S. eventually?

I've given up on the 261's, I can get nice set of BBS with Pilot sports for the price of 261 rims.

The 18" Double Spoke 182 wheels are similar.
