Best source for M performance parts

Hi Guys,

I've seen this question asked a few times throughout the couple of months I've been active in this forum but I was not able to find the threads.

Where do you guys go to get the most aggressive pricing for MPerformance parts (m performance exhaust specifically) for the M2C?

Getting pretty close to pulling the trigger finally and I just wanted to take into consideration the added cost of ownership *cough aftermarket parts cough*

replies would be much appreciated. Thank you!

I heard they were raising prices to be in line with other dealerships. You'd have to contact them to confirm, but if that's the case it probably isn't worth buying anything through them as opposed to your local parts dept.

Brian leaving Sun Motors is more devastating to me than most of my relationship break ups.

Oh hmm, interesting about Brian. I was wondering why the carbon interior kit price increased on their ebay store, then went out of stock and was never relisted. I know he managed all of that. There entire ebay store has nothing on it now.

I'm surprised they don't just continue their aggressive pricing at Sun Motors since they've already established themselves. I'm sure the volume of sales they were getting more than makes up for it. Oh well.

I can also confirm they no longer are being aggressive about their pricing as of January 1st and will no longer be the kind of deals that were available in the past. They're even winding down their ebay presence.

Sucks but I guess that's the end of me buying from them.

Noticed the Sun eBay store was sparse the other day and messaged - no response.

Brian's Linkedin says he's worked at Sun Motor cars for over 29 years, and for BMW for 5 years before that. I don't know what happened, but god bless him. That's some dedication.
