Ordering Bing parts

I need to get a new float bowl and an air/fuel mixture screw for my carbs. They are working fine now, but show signs of a lot of corrosion and such.

I called bing, and they said I should look to spend in the ballpark of $60 for a float bowl and 10 for the screw.

Anyone know of a any other good sources of these parts that may be a bit cheaper? I realize that those prices aren't bad....just wanted to double check prior to making the purchase.

If it matters I've got a 78 100/7 with the CV carbs (64/32/19&20)

BING always seems to be on the high side of prices. MaxBMW wants $43.90 for the float bowl.

ANY BMW dealership. Call WITH the PN's you need. If they don't have them in stock there is no excuse to not have them in a few business days. If they have an excuse, call another dealer. If they charge more than the price at Max BMW, same deal. Go to a different dealer!
