Have you contacted the Dealer in Newport Beach or Canada?

Well, that shoots that in the ass! Contacted ACS US about shipping. Even though I'd be ordering it through their office in California I would have to pay shipping from Germany. Estimated $100 shipping. I asked if they might be stocking the part locally any time in the future and got an unequivocal "NO". To tell the truth the guy didn't sound like he was that interested in my business anyway.

Well that just sucks but honestly $ 100.00 is not bad at all shipping it from Germany. I just shipped a Michelin Bib to Sweden and it cost $ 94.00 from PHX and that package was only about 2 pounds in weight. :(

Sounds like time for a Group Buy on that splitter! :). Deal directly with ACS Germany & tell them about the US Distributor guy's bad attitude!

My gripe is... if they have offices in the USA why should I have to pay the price to ship from Germany? If this is the case, what's the advantage of having a US office? When I buy a part from Mini that has to come from Germany I don't pay for shipping from Germany.

Here's a thought....do you have a good relationship with your local BMW Dealer Parts Dept? ACS is an authorized parts supplier for BMW, so maybe they could order the splitter for you. Might be worth checking out!
