AC Compressor...time to replace.

Strangely, the search did not return many results dealing with our ac compressors...maybe just my old man searching malfunction.

Anyway, had the M at the dealer to replace some tires I purchased from Called me today and said the AC compressor was leaking oil (I assume this ad has clutch oil), which means it is just a matter of time before it seizes.

Two questions:
1. Anyone had similar symptoms on your M3?
2.Can you think of any reason why I should pay ridic OEM part costs ($1100 a $1900) for a new compressor versus buying the Denso version for $350 - $450?
