X5 'Lecky Window Master Switch

Anyone have any idea where to obtain an electric window master switch (in drivers door) for an X5.The Main Dealers require 196+Vat for this item. There must be a breaker somewhere that has one, I've been searching for hours.

Nope, they're all slightly different. None of the 5 series switches are the same.

Ask for a test drive at a BMW stealer's say you would like to try it over night so the wife can try it out!
When you take it back you do not have to tell them the window will not open!


Advice given & to be taken with a pinch off salt!
