I know a lot of us buy parts from Crown auto, so this is an FYI. I placed an order with them yesterday and got the usual order confirmation from JD, but this morning I got this:
Sorry we are no longer filling mail orders and are in the process of shutting down the website.
:(

I have purchased stuff from Tischer before, no complaints other than my last order is about 12% higher at Tischer than it was at Crown...

Tischer is very good. I've purchased many items from them. Also, they are board sponsors. Would not hesitate to purchase from them again.

JD left Crown a long time ago. I believe he's at DDM Tuning now - www.ddmoem.com

That's interesting, the "order confirmation" email I got yesterday was from jdross, wonder if he knows they are still using his name.
They are more than likely still using his name. He now is employed at DDM OEM where he also distributes OEM parts. I've purchased from there also, and although the prices are usually better, I would not recommend them to non-locals (local SD).

BMW of North Haven CT - bmwpartzdirect.com

PassPort BMW (also in MD) - passportautoparts.com


I've ordered from both - often times same pricing as Tischer. YMMV.

I stopped ordering from Crown once JD "left". What they did to him was completely uncalled for.

Tischer has been a good source for me, too. I recommend them.

I use Tischer and have never been disappointed. Jason and Evan will go out of their way
to make certain you are satisfied.

Alan
