Know a shop in Germany near the border that'll fit Wilbers shocks to my motorcycle?

Hey,

I have a BMW 1150GS - and it needs new shocks. I want to get the Wilbers which are made in Germany. My regular dealers won't order Wilbers parts, and the few other places i found randomly on the net here in switzerland charge an absolutely outrageous price just for the shocks themselves (>20% over the price from going to www.wilbers.de and ordering manually).

SO, does anyone know a place near(ish) the border, in Germany, that'll order & install Wilbers shocks on my bike? The idea is to get the MwSt back...

thanks
