Some of these things truly are bargains.

Some are just cheap tat.

Hedgehog resistors for the E46 are an excellent example - BMW charge $$$$ for them, but the $ ones from China last 5 minutes.
And they're a pig to fit.

12 months later my fan still works :) I agree though, some sh*t is sh*t ! Toyota are worse than BMW for parts prices, I paid $90 for 2 O rings for the oil filter housing...

Interestingly LEXUS has just majorly dropped their prices for spare parts inside China, the CCCP is investigating the automotive industry as it suspects foreign players are taking the piss with their spares pricing.

Adding to, it's an air con pressure switch - NOT a temp switch.

Apples to oranges. This isn't the original BMW part. Here is a more reasonable comparison:

I think Dave's point stands.

Yes had seen that one too. The point was that, apart from extortion. it is also not the part they are listing it as
