RealOEM and Tischer greasemonkey script

Like you, I use RealOEM or BMWFans.info to find the part I need, and then look up the prices on vendor web sites. For me, I use getbmwparts.com. I am not affiliated with them, btw.

Anyways, I wrote this little Greasemonkey script tonight to cross link the part numbers from RealOEM/bmwfans and perform the part search on getbmwparts.com (Tischer BMW), Crown Auto, and BMW Partz Direct. Saves me a couple steps, maybe it'll save you some too.

Feel free to post to other forums. Should really only work on BMWs at the moment. I don't plan on doing others, except maybe for Audis, because I don't have any other cars .

You need to:
1. install firefox
2. install greasemonkey
3. install my script

For those of you that installed this on Oct 24, 2009, please click step #3 above. I wrote a new script (name change) that pulls from bmwfans and realoem.

CHANGELOG:
1: initial release of new bmwfans/realoem version

Very nice! Is there any way you could include a few other parts stores like Crown and BMW Partz Direct? That way we could quickly comparison shop between the three. For instances, if I look at a catalytic converter 18307505321 for my car I get the following:

Crown - $1,407.90
Tischer - $1,375.24
BMW Partz Direct - $1,289.29

A difference here is almost $118.00.

Yup. Just didn't know what places people normally buy from. I'll look into it tonight.

While we're making requests, what are the chances you can make it work with a different original source beside RealOEM (such as BMW Parts)?

I ask only because the BMW Parts database is MUCH more user friendly...

Thanks Mark!

here is where my noob status shines. i had no idea this site existed! I've been using realoem all this time. Can someone give me a list of part places like these, and a list of vendor places where they do part lookups? That would be a good starting point.

Let me see what I can hack up for bmwfans.info
