    Default Yay BMA! Emailed Patrick Monday, needing new rotors and pads...

    they showed up here yesterday, UPS Ground, from New Jersey (their East coast warehouse, I suppose). Fantastic service. Ginger gets new stoppers installed, and brake fluid flush, tomorrow!

    Those guys are the best. I can't wait until I need to buy parts for my car and can use them again. Well, I guess I can wait. But it sure feels good knowing the future source of parts is as competent and available as BMA. It's also nice hearing that their distribution is spreading. Great for them from a warehousing and rent-paying point of view, great for us as customers.

    The service from BMA is great. Patrick explain they have a new agreedment with UPS, such that for us in NoCal, we now receive our orders the next day from UPS.

    bah you guys :P

    i ordered a tranny filter kit, 2 new window motors and a bentley last friday, and wont come in until today around 4. im in lex, ky. they shipped from calif though.. and they have a warehouse in NJ? oh well.

    no complaints though. the money saved is well worth the wait (dealer wanted $130 for a filter kit and BMA had the same part #'s for $21?! saved $110 on the window motors too!). damn dealer even said they wouldnt order the parts unless they could install them! fags.

    Agreed, they wanted around $100 each for coils, and a left nut to install them. BMA had them for a third of that. They're the best!

    It always takes at least 5 days when i order from them... just a UPS thing. They can give you tracking number if you ask for it btw.

    That's because BMA doesn't drop ship for some reason; they insist that items come to them first, and then they rebox them and ship them out. I don't really know why. When I need parts the next day, I use http://www.partsbmw.com/ which is located in PA. Otherwise, it's BMA,
