EBAY m sport exhaust?

http://www.ebay.com/itm/BMW-M-Perfor...sories&vxp=mtr

Anyone see this on ebay? This is just too good to be true. How can they sell so cheap and ship for free, it has to be a scam..
I called my friend yesterday to give me a quote on his price on the M-sport exhaust and he said with his employee discount its 1,040. Not bad considering all the web sites have it listed for 995.00, but after shipping its around $1,060 to $1,080 us dollars.

That is cheap. BTW.. that's the "M Performance" exhaust. M-sport would mean something completely different. (sorry.. just nitpicking)..

i mean they have other bmw performance parts
Carbon/Alcantara trim for F30
F30 M Steering Wheel
E90 M3 performance exhaust
and they have a lot of reviews, nothing about them seems suspicious, just another ebay seller with a lot of different items.

No it's cool, I should have worded it correctly. Btw it's your fault you kinda talked me into this exhaust so yeah. This price is hard to pass up!

Yes I guess you do have a good point. Plus his feedback is 99% WICH is good.

Damn $950 from a dealer is really good! You know how they get all stingy with anythong that has an M logo on it.

This was discussed in another previous thread on the N55 subforum: http://www.f30post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=719670

Someone in the old thread commented that there is a different part number for the European M Performance exhaust and the US M Performance exhaust, I wonder if there are any design differences, like a quieter exhaust note, perhaps? Probably not, just wondering if there is logical reason to have a different European part number.

Regardless, the part number listed in the eBay listing matches the US part number listed on realOEM.com

US: 18302293774
European: 18302293773

Would really like to know what the difference is between those two part numbers. Only thing stopping me buying one is that I want the euro part number (for my euro spec car).

Looks like someone bought it- the listing has ended. Was it anyone here?

I almost bought it last night, but had second thoughts. Despite the positive feedback, I became suspicious with just a few mouse clicks. The seller has such a strange mix of products that don't make sense together, plus a few random BMW M Performance parts, and then I saw the seller is in Latvia but the part is shipping from Luxembourg with free DHL Express shipping, and other items are shipping from Riga, Latvia...combined with the low price it all just seemed a bit too fishy, so I didn't complete the transaction. While the seller might be legit, I can't help but wonder if their products "fell off the back of a truck."

Maybe, but it was probably a cool European truck!

Lol I mean this makes sense. Why would it be so cheap! I'd rather spend $1,000 at the dealer I can get one for cost, and have a piece of mind knowing its the real thing and most of all it's really on its way on the boat.

Tru-dat.... It was cheaper, but how much is your headache worth?

Pretty sure that was the real deal exhaust. I personally wouldn't even consider one until I hear the difference between the OEM one and Performance one in person.

it's a subtle difference indeed, check my video in another posting...tangible, not negligible, more subtle, VERY noticeable when shifting in Sport, though. Which is nice.

This is the best deal that I was able to find the only problem for me is they are located in California so shipping is going to be a killer.
