I never use anything other than OE or OEM parts unless it is an aftermarket part for improved performance. A good site to compare prices is Furiousmethod.com - BMW Parts Price Comparison. My experience is a cheap part comes with a higher risk of not being a good part. I like FCP Euro but shop several other BMW part suppliers such as ECS Tuning for sales or lower prices on the same part.

I like those but happened into the BMW version for a great price on eBay. They are regular life savers! Just today I had a shamrock shake tip over right in the middle off my rubber floor mat.
