BMW Edition black chrome tips....why the price increase?

does anyone know why the price of the BMW Edition black chrome exhaust tips seems to have quadrupled in the past year or so?

I just cleaned my OEM chrome tips today. I know precisely why they've been increased. The black chrome look great and don't require as much attention.

E92 M3 Edition Tips on special here for $88.00 each. In stock and ready to ship.

BMW recently increased cost/MSRP on these, so we had to unfortunately adjust our online pricing accordingly.

Do they make them for the E90, and if so, are they any bigger in diameter?
