Decided to price out OEM 214 wheels and some other stuff from dealer, wanted thoughts

Hey guys,

I decided to see how much it would be if I ordered the oem style 214s (w/tires) from the dealer, running boards and fender flares.

Came out to 7k basically. 1k for flares installed and 1200 for running boards installed. Now I did some research and hell this dealers own website said 980 installed for running boards. What should I expect for the 214s brand new price wise? Also what do fender flares normally cost from the dealer? I wanted to add that parts ran 600 for the flares and about 400 for labor at 2.8 hours of labor (the estimate says) and the parts for the running boards was 650 with 450 labor wise for them, which was closer to estimate than the flares were. Wheels I'm not sure of being price wise as I wanted to get an idea on those from someone.

And should I email this guy and tell him his estimate is way off base?

Cheers

I suggest looking at BMW Parts and Accessories at GetBMWparts.com. They have occasional sales and have the best prices from my experience.

Thanks man! I just checked on the wheels, a whole 1k cheaper than what the dealer quoted me. Interesting. Will start ordering stuff when I can.

Cheers!

I do, but didn't know about the quality, and how different in the looks department are they from OEM? I may consider that route, just not sure yet. Figured OEM by be the best route. What is your take on that?

I think replicas weigh more than OEM. I would see if I can buy a used set from another member. Those are usually offered at a significant discount vs new.

There are no "OEMs"...the manufacturers that make the wheels for BMW (this is an "OEM")are precluded from making copies of the BMW wheels.

You may find copies...and they may SAY "oem" ...but they will be lying.

Wheels you buy from BMW are better termed OE.

The fender flares take an hour max to install yourself, maybe even down to 30 minutes if you have a rivet tool. Cost used to be about $250 for the parts but it probably went up a bit by now.

And regarding replicas - they may vibrate at high speeds due to imperfect roundness - I've had too much experience with this. If you can go OE, go for it. Otherwise, I'd say go with the Brooklyn place too - most likely was talking about: https://www.facebook.com/eudmautosports1 - they were very helpful on the phone even though I didn't end up going with them (my style wasn't available).

I know they aren't exactly OEM (Ronal or whoever makes them) but just use the term for original equipment wheels.

I had a chat with EUDM and they seem nice enough. I'll have to figure things out in about a month or so. I've never used a rivet tool so that may make things a bit complicated for me. however from the quote I got, 2.8 hours seemed like bs to me to install those flares. And I know they don't cost 600 new. Another dealer further out in Jersey sales them on their ebay page for just over 300.
