    BMW Tools are a Bargain! (Camhead tool)

    Just ordered the official BMW special tool 14mm spark plug wrench for Camheads, i.e. 12 1 220 aka 83 30 0 495 560

    Tool supllied is Hazet 4766-2 (made in Germany). BMW # engraved on it.

    This is a real spark plug tool, with internal springs to hold the plug. (Rubber is passe.)

    Just for fun, comparison shopped at usual Hazet source, i.e. Chad's Toolbox. (chadstoolbox.com)

    Chad says retail for this tool is $72.36 and his "bargain" price is $54.27.

    Chad also says he has a "115% price guarantee" and will "beat any competitor." Bet he doesn't know about BMW bike dealers. Aren't channels of distribution cool?

    This isn't the first time I've found best prices at dealers, as for example two of my torque wrenches were obtained through the Mercedes parts system for significantly less than usual prices at tool sellers.

    Perhaps conventional thinking deserves an occasional double check.
