+1 on
lowest prices and quality products thats if you want OEM replacement, with Aftermarket parts its a different story

+1 also on bimmerspecialist they have a good selection and good prices. is also good because they have pretty close to the same pricing and selection as bimmerspecialist and offer free shipping on orders over $75. Bimmerspecialist has the better selection of parts because their warehouses are in the US (Seattle, WA) but for that reason they don't offer free shipping to Canada.

If you're doing the work yourself, all part houses listed above will work

If you're NOT doing the work, talk to Peter at Guelph Import Automotive (he's across from the farmers market downtown, behind the chiropractor's office on Waterloo Ave (I live in Guelph as well)

Good luck,
