Gotta love the U.S.
Did some comparison shopping today for a new left hand button cluster; cruise, shield, turn signal, horn and here's the good and bad news:
Living in Canada and owning a BMW can be hazardouse to your bank account.
Polled 4 BMW dealers in southern Ontario: BMW Toronto, McBrides Toronto, Budds BMW Oakville, Wolf BMW London Ontario.
All were comparable and in the $750 + 15% TAX price; $500 for the part, 3 hours labour at $80/hour.
Country Rode BMW, Rochester was the lone dealer in at $296 part, + 180 labour (3 hrs) + 8% tax, with the exchange it works out to $580.
Total savings about $282.
Booked it with Country Rode and I'll even get the opportunity to demo afew of their bikes while I wait.
Love that American service and hospitality.
