Need New Radiator. Also Need Advice Now.

Hello everyone.

First of all, I hope I've posted this in the correct section. Forgive me If I haven't. I'm ok with it being moved to its correct forum section if need be.

Anyways, I own a 02 BMW 325i. This car has been great to me since I purchased it used from a buddy just over a year ago. It's fulfilled its job quite well, while sparing me any headache. However, just yesterday my car overheated on me. When I got home I inspected its radiator and found that this part was to blame. It showed signs of leakage and a majority of the fins were severely bent. I know that replacement is my only option at this point, but before I do so, I'd like some advice. I've decided to purchase an aftermarket version online, but don't know which companies are reputable. I've found two that I particularly like but before I buy from one of them, I'd like some sort of verification that they are a legitimate business. I almost never buy anything online so I don't know how to spot a scam, and I can't afford to be scammed.

Has anyone dealt with either of the following companies and can verify that they are a legitimate company? The parts on each site match the OEM number of the part I need.. Thanks in advance.

Welcome to the Werkz.

I have purchased an all aluminium radiator from these guys before. They were very helpful and Dwight seems like a really nice guy who is interested in his customers.

I purchased an OE Behr radiator from autopartswarehouse.com. I was pretty satisfied. You can find a coupon to apply to your order if you search on google/yahoo/etc. I got a pretty nice deal.

Sorry, I can't vouch for the sites you list.
