However I am in agreement with you to just buy the OE part not in a BMW box - I found out the OE bearings were F.A.G. brand some years back when I did mine and just bought 2 of them, 2 dust shields from the dealer, 2 circlips (big mothers), and 2 new axle nuts (you can re-use the hubs)
BMW dealership told me a year ago and when I asked my ex BMW dealership indy last week to reconfirm he said the exact same thing. lesser quality parts sold in common repair packages.
