Has anyone come up with a way to beat the high price of shipping for parts, specifically the larger pieces, such as the Fender Liners or the Pork Chops (front lower fender liners)? Maybe a better source for these parts?
I was going to order two new fender liners from GetBMWParts.com (Tischer) for $60 USD, and was horrified when my $120 in parts would have required $140 in additional shipping costs.
Adam (Clemster) had mentioned in the past that it's not practical to order large parts and like a noob, I balked. not anymore.
Some places advertise free shipping if the order is over $XXXX. You might try to get over the threshold amount and see if that qualifies for free shipping.
You also might see if any of the parts places fulfill the order through Amazon, which offers free shipping to its Prime ($99, now I believe $149 per year) members.
