Never thought such a price was possible.
I was considering buying 200l barrels and filling them with fuel. However I have no way to transport those barrels lol
Just call up a local bulk fuel delivery company, and get a quote. they're used on construction sites to fill up equipment typically. All you need to do is procure these 200L barrels. And then Local industrial suppliers make pre-assembled 12v fuel pumps with a hose and fill handle that thread into the standardized plastic fuel barrels.

https://www.e-acca.com/
It's a company from Latvia. I'm not sure where they get the parts, but they have like every single parts! I don't know where they source them, but they have original parts.
I think their ebay store it oe245
I have used these folk for parts. Very good service and pricing but slow shipping to this part of the world (nearly as far from Latvia as you can get and stay on the planet!). Packaging was good too - the three front mesh grill parts from the bumper arrived in perfect condition after a three month transit.

Would use them again for part I don't need in a hurry.

Just remember that alot of these vendors with OE parts posted, order from a dealer source and resell & box them to ship to you. No inventory just a computer terminal. Call on your local BMW dealer and make a commercial account call. Worth the effort. Tell them you do side work and you will pay the sales tax on each order. I give my local dealer some $1-2K annual sales just for my fleet.

You mean they order from the same place the dealer orders from?
I'm in Canada so I'm not exactly sure...what do you mean "tell them I'll pay taxes on each order"?
We always pay taxes in Canada, which go to the government, not dealership. I feel like I'm not understanding you.
