There are other rubber wellnuts available that are considerably less expensive than the oem. Do a forum search for wellnuts and you should be able to find the source if someone that remembers doesn't post it here.
The metal clip style nuts are different than any others I have seen. I haven't been able to find them just like that anywhere except through BMW.
I have used the less expensive wellnuts, but found them to be of much inferior quality and went back to oem.
I generally order a few of each as well as some extra screws when I run low and have something else to order from Max BMW.
