Can't beat OEM. Got mine from getbmwparts.com on a special. The quality of OEM is amazing (compared to the previous CF replacements I had), but the fit honestly is not perfect.

Probably about 550-600 for OEMs on sale. 430 is a steal.

got mine from bmw part pro for $475 shipped.

Someone said the fit is not perfect but they were for me. I think the key is putting on the included foam tape all around.
