i want one. IN my opinion, ebay isnt bad... ive purchased many, many UB light kits for VERY cheap, and they have always been just as good as the $150 kits.
I've only had a problem with ebay once, and you usually can tell by their feedback rating, he seems to have a prety good feedback rating so id be fairly confident with your purchase.

the only thing is, youd have to get it cut... id ask your dealer how much that is before i would buy it if i were you...

Getting them cut is simple, any locksmith can cut them to match your orginal. The install isn't that hard either, a good understanding of electrical systems is needed, plus a BMW wiring diagram.

How hard would it be to install it? 1-10 1 being changing oil, 10 being rebuilding an engine.
