I do not recommend bmwpartspros.com at all. they have messed up two out of three of my orders so far. Inflexible return/exchange policy. My vote is for getbmwparts.com!!!

the "bottom line" prices are offered by many vendors here, and most will price match each other. Some research would help, and there's never a one-stop shop. Generally, you should pick the one who offers the cheapest shipping option since you are shipping it to Guatemala, b/c international shipping costs can blow up any budget pricing or good deals.

As previously mentioned, you have to look at various sites because a site offering the best price on one item does not mean that same site is the best on all items all the time. I think, on occasion, dealers just want to get rid of stock.
I get the BMW part number (realoem.com) for the part I'm looking for, Google it, and look at the sites which come up. At times it's been a dealer in California, other times it's been a dealer in Connecticut advertising on e-bay.
Always check out shipping and taxes. Some will lower the item price then get you on shipping and handling.

For online parts, most of the dealers that sell online have similar prices.. just go with the one that has the best service.

In the end, Circle BMW was the most professional and best priced source

I made the deal with Chris there
