So it's almost time to replace the front EDC front struts on my M Sport. I had a connection at my local BMW Dealer that quoted me employee pricing of $642 per leg when I was ready. It's tax time and I am making out ok this year so I decided its time to purchase only to find out that my connection has left the dealership, which means so has my "special pricing" so this brings me to my question, I found a set of used EDC struts out of a breaker with 96k km on them for about $750 + $50 shipping. My mechanic has advised me not to by the used ones as I may only get a year or so out of them, I am not in a position right now to buy the EDC Struts at dealer cost of $1102 per side. What is the general consensus on picking up the used ones as a hold over till next year when it will be a better time to afford the dealer price.
