Options for Jack, original missing

Can someone tell me if the had any luck with getting a jack that will serve as the original. When I got my X3, it was missing the jack for whatever reason.

Looking at realOEM apparently the jack is specific to 04-10 X3s. Wondering if anyone had any luck with a cheaper alternative then going with OEM for the trunk jack.

Thanks!

My wifes X3 was missing jack as well, I went with a used X5 jack that has a different part number but works perfectly fine.

Yes, X5 was an E53, X3 is an '05. I'm not sure how it's supposed to fit in the holder and I think the X5 jack is slightly longer and doesn't fit like it is supposed to, but it does fit. On both I wrap the jack in a rag to keep it from rattling and so that I have a rag handy when I use the jack.

Will have to check if there is X5's on the local classifieds for scrap or the pickers.
