Have fitted aftermarket ones, but that's when they were about £45 quid. They aren't as good a casting and as such, getting the powerflex wishbones on was a real pain!

Had a quick look on Eurocarparts, for my Car they would be £167 ish each side - With the Discount offered through the other Club, it drops from £335 a pair to £251. They are made by Lemforder

My Car being a 2.0 CDT.

I haven't fitted new Wishbones, but have had fitted two new Wishbone Bushes from Eurocarparts, a few months in and all still ok.

Aftermarket doesn't always mean cheap :)

Fitted Electric Memory Seat, Leather Cubby Lid, Wood Dash, Message Centre.

Lemforder are OEM BMW parts so I wouldn't be surprised if they were suppliers for MGR at some point. Lemforder are discontinuing their 75/ZT range however.

I think current OEM are Valeo, but not 100% sure.
