The area I live in was ravaged by the fires last September & the local BMW dealer had to move. They're now up & running again for service, put not many parts in stock and have to order lost everything. Even they're suppliers don't have a lot in stock.

Any suggestions on where to order/buy new parts that will arrive quicker?

If you want OEM there's a dealer in Eugene, one in Tigard, one over the river in Vancouver WA, one up in Fife WA and two near Seattle. Their aftermarket distributors are based in Reno and southern Cali. BMW is based in Ontario CA and New Jersey. There is merely the usual supply issue from BMW. It was difficult news hearing long-time dealer Hansen's was burnt to the ground in those terrible fires. Perhaps it's a money problem, or someone is telling you fibs.

So it was Hansen's that burned?  Isn't that the shop that everyone (seemingly) relied on for new splines?  If so, that is a huge loss for the wider riding community.  I don't think there were ever many alternatives when the time came for new drive splines on BMWs. What a pity. Sad
I'm surprised that sad event was never mentioned in the Owner's News.

Hello jmailey,

I’ve had good results using both Bobs BMW and MAX BMW east coast dealers.
reasonably quick shipping prices... 😖 but thats BMW for you.
I believe Max is offering free shipping winter months?
good luck.

Max BMW has free shipping, and... *whispers*... they don't charge sales tax.

Oregon doesn't have sales tax. So there's that going for him if he ends up utilising the competent & long-time Beemer dealers within the state.

Washington state has, for a while now, charged sales tax, currently 9.9% in the county where I live, on all interstate purchases from online stores. But then, there's no state income tax. It all adds up/washes out in the end. 

Death & taxes, give to Caesar what Caesar is due, ain't none of us getting out of here alive, with our toys, and all that.

The county where I live gets 9%. All the online retailers I do business with add it except for Max which I believe is HQ'd in New Hampshire, Live Free or Die, baby!

Plus, there's the bag of M&M's in every order.

M&M's...mmmm. I dare to eat the red ones & live to tell about it. But any colour will do. Especially with peanuts.

Yeah, I save them up and throw them in the pockets of my fairing when I'm on the road. M&M's and Granola bars. Yum.

Add in some 5 Hour Energy drink and the last 2-3 hours of a 14 hour/800 mile day are tolerable.
