+1 to fcpeuro.com. The lifetime replacement guarantee of "everything" including fluids that they offer is insane. I think a few other stores are doing lifetime replacements of parts including fluids as well.

I'm leery of Amazon and eBay only because it's difficult to confirm the genuineness of parts sometimes. The return process is always easy, but still, a hassle when it's a part you really needed asap.

Just last week I ordered a Mass Air Flow sensor to replace my current one when I do a spark plug change this weekend. I ordered the MAF from Amazon. Two days later arrives a pristine Amazon box. Inside the box, however, was a beat-up Bosch branded box with the "Genuine Parts" seal already broken and a MAF that had clearly been rewrapped in paper. Sure, I was able to drop it back off at our local Amazon Store and got a refund the same day, but that now meant a delay with the maintenance I was getting ready to perform. I ordered another MAF from fcpeuro yesterday and it'll be here Friday.

Sorry for the rant.

I've also received parts from different suppliers through Amazon in their OEM boxes that look like they'd been used many, many times before. One part for instance was a wheel bearing and another a glow plug control unit. In both cases though the parts actually looked perfect and worked perfectly. I don't know what it is with the boxes, but it simply destroys your confidence in the supplier.

Another very good source (with perfect boxes!) is Pelican Parts for Mercedes, BMW, Porsche. I have bought many parts from them. Their prices are very competitive, products are well packaged and parts of perfect quality. For me they're like the Costco for parts!
