I just picked up an E30 also, my second. I have had europartsetc.com reommended to me. They have a Canadian presence and I have to try them yet perhaps some on the board has had dealings with them and can comment. I have had luck with Bavauto in the distant past but there is more suppliers locally now.

They have US prices in CDN, and ships from Montreal (no PST, no duty!!!)
They have saved me so much money and are usually cheaper than autopartsway.ca.

My intake gasket was $60 at autopartsway.ca and $35 at bimmerspecialist.com for the same OEM.

all these canadian places charge to much shipping. $16 shipping for a $20 intake boot....?

Bcus i fly to the states alot, i often get stuff shipped to my hotel for free, and their prices are always cheaper.

for example i just ordered control arms, lemforder for $112US free shipping each, from bimmerworld it's $145+ each plus shipping, which isn't cheap.

Try Rmeuropean.com or www.bmaparts.com if you ever go to the US.
