Best store for engine parts?

So... I recently purchased a e92 328, had an inspection done and was told everything was g2g, well either the guy who inspected it lied or is a complete idiot... I went to change my spark plugs and found not only was there clumps of dirt and oil under the valve cover shield but that the Valvetronic motor gasket and ESS are both leaking oil

I'm looking to do the work myself and picking up the gaskets and most likely an ESS, I've looked at the normal germanparts.ca and stuff listed on here but their prices for non OEM stuff are pretty high if not on par with OEM

I would suggest when dealing with gaskets to go with oem.

I know in the GTA there are a few dealers that offer discounted parts for membership in certain clubs. Might be worth investigating in your area too.

If not available, might make sense to buy here and ship too.


For other parts, check FCP Euro (lifetime warranty on all things), along with your other online sources.

I've dealt with Luxury European Autoparts alot, they sell OEM parts cheaper than the dealer. Rockauto.com is a place I like for pricing of some parts online along with Partsavatar.ca
