How much gas you ask? Go to bmw.ca and look it up. An e9x 328xi averages ~10l/100km vs 9l/100km for a 328. That's 10% -> around 8 bucks everytime you fill up a tank. You do the math.
And of course... Any particular reason why you would need this part if XI never breaks?
that part is wear and tear .. I dont need it right now so I thought I'd look around. I can buy it at anytime but I am shopping round for a cheaper price .. nothing new compared to what others do here as well. Its a common thing on the e90 but not on the e46
Gas really depends on how you drive .. even if it were 8 dollars more per fill up wtf are you worried about 8 dollars if your driving around in a BMW.
