What is a good reasonable source for BMW parts ? I need 6 coils which were fouled out with oil from a busted cover gasket. I am finding that BMW parts from a local store are incredibly expensive.

actual OEM BMW parts are ONLY available through dealers - per the contract that BMW corporate has with its dealers.

The best dealer that sells online is https://www.getbmwparts.com/

An alternative is to just google the OEM BMW part number of what you need and see what other vendors sell them, but they will be reselling parts that initially came through a dealer, so there isn't always a ton of pricing flexibility. Sometimes you can find new old stock or blowout pricing if you get lucky by googling

What about good BMW parts source that are not OEM ?
Non own parts are usually poor quality and 99% of the time inferior to bmw own. Non own depends on the manufacturer of the part, not the source that you buy it from.
