    How many here shop Rockauto.com? I don't use

    them much as they're not competitive enough with the big three:
    autohausaz, rmeuropean.com and pelicanparts.com.
    But, they ship fast and I never had problem with them and I highly recommend them.
    They have really good price on NGK BKR6EQUP(3199), after using promotion code. It comes under $7.50 per plug.

    I use them for my Suburban needs..................

    but usually not for BMW stuff. At times, I use them for BMW stuff like O2 sensors, and spark plugs. I do find their prices are good, but you need to be careful of ordering a bunch of items and then getting hit with high shipping costs because they source from several places on an order with multiple items.

    For the BMW, I have used the same companies you have plus Crevier in the past but not for some time now.
    2002 540 6 speed, Steel Blue/Black interior, totally loaded with every option, and now with built in Stealth One/Valentine 1. 18" Staggered Privat wheels. I am loving the power again!

    2003 525iT, Silver/Black, non-sport, 18" Staggered BBS RC wheels. T boned and traded away.

    2000 540 6 speed, Biarritz Blue/Sand, M5 shifter, XM Radio Valentine One/Stealth One hardwired in, 17" style 5 wheels
    Sold but never forgotten.

    2001 525i, stock, great car that got me hooked, sold

    I bought some rotors and pads from them about 5 years ago, but that was it. Also bought Ford parts for the wife's car, as I couldn't find cheaper prices from anymore. But for BMWs, after that initial rotor/pad order, I ended up sticking with the three you mentioned, and routinely order from all three.
