Had front left wheel hub bearing replaced for noise at 100k km (not miles) on my E70 X5M. Shop insisted OE only and I paid C$550 for a part + C$360 labour so C$1,000 with tax for a bearing. There are C$50-C$200 bearings with matching part numbers on ebay, so I may try next time. Thought better go with OE, but may cut corners in the future and take some risks with some parts available as non-OE as dealer prices for parts are..... high. Not sure if non-OE bearing for an M car is a good idea but may try next time.
