    posted by error originally on the M forum...

    Has anyone recently purchased a new exterior aerial grommet? they seem to be very expensive for what they are....11 pound for one in chelmsford, england with nearly 5 pound postage to australia...

    in the USA they are cheaper to purchase but want silly things like 40 - 50 dollars postage...

    cheers

    Greg and Francesca.

    I replaced mine several years back, and yes they seem they are relatively expensive for what they are. Not sure there is really anywhere else to get them cheaper. I'd guess your local BMW Dealer probably work out similarly expensive.

    PS. Removed the duplicate post for you ;)

    Just bought one for $9.00 w/free shipping (gee, thanks). I'm sure it costs less that $2.00. Hey, Gary, get a mess of them made up and sell them on E-Bay. Make money for the forum. (Members get a discount.) Frankie at Caesars. (work)

    Changed both of mine a few weeks ago - prices from Sopers. Don't know what non-Uk packaging would be.

    Hi
    Hi Frankie, I know I said I wouldn't comment on your posts but could you buy one and post it to Ozz cheaper than $40-50? Just a thought, JIM
