One might remember this thread when it comes time to chose between buying service parts, accessories, etc from your local dealer vs the Interwebz sources. Accessory and parts sales used to make up a large part of a dealers incoming cash flow - now a bricks and mortar store is hard pressed to just stay in business.. many BMW riders treat the dealership as a place to try out something for size/fit before buying it on-line.

Just food for thought..
