E39 warning triangle for toolbox on ebay for $8

It has always annoyed me that my E39 toolbox in the trunk had empty spots as the US spec cars did not get a warning triangle. I took a chance on ebay and found one that fit perfectly, and it looks like it's the same manufacturer and, other than the metal legs, looks identical to the OEM spec triangle.

Link to ebay auction is Car Triangle Safety Warning Parking Sign Reflective Fold able Road Emergency New Currently priced at $8 shipped, but it will take a couple of weeks to arrive as it's coming from China.

If you want the OEM one, part numbers are below, but I don't think they sell them anymore.

P/N 71 60 1 095 457 Warning triangle w/ container [05/00+]
P/N 71 60 1 095 535 Warning triangle w/o container [05/00+]

First one sold out, but this looks like it's the same one: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Detachable-...y/254161156793

You can still get them new. I just got one from TheBMWPartStore for $22 a month ago. Morristown has them even cheaper at $16.50. Part# is 71606770487.

Yeah, at that price, it's too easy to pick one up. Think I'm gonna start using it every time I get gas.

Ordered one as well. Few months ago, I went through an ordeal where I ordered 4 different triangles, supposedly correct part numbers that were to fit in my toolkit, and none of them did fit. Returned all of those. Hopefully this one works!
