I’m trying to find the cotter clips for the front and rear brakes. BMW only sells the bolt, clip, and cotters as a set for $30.
$90 for all three seems stupid for something that should cost penneys. Any insight as to where I can find ?
Thanks

Is there any reason you need OEM cotter pins? Are they a specual shape?

I'd go to the hardware store with one of the bolts (or one of the other pins if they aren't all missing) and look for a close fitting generic one.

If you care about having all the pins match, just buy enough to replace all of them.

First stop for BMW parts should be the online fiche at Max BMW to track down the part and price. Here's the link: https://shop.maxbmw.com/fiche/PartsFiche.aspx

If it's an expensive item, give the Beemer Boneyard a try. Here's the link: https://www.beemerboneyard.com

For hard to find metric hardware and automotive specialty supplies, Give Bel-Metric a try. A while back I needed 10 M5X20SI Torx stainless fasteners. Max BMW wanted $2.53 each. That's $25.30. I bought them from Bel-Metric @ 48 cents each. That's $4.80. Saved $20.50 and Bel-Metric's website made it easy to find what I needed. Here's a link: https://www.belmetric.com

Are these something really special or just a cotter pin? Are they even cotter pins ( that you bend over) or some kind of spring clip? ( commonly called Jesus clips).
Post a picture maybe?
Either way a decent hardware store should be able to provide something that will work.
