compare prices and value with dealer vs independent.
if you have a friend in a dealer who can get you a deal,can't beat that.dealers have lates and greatest parts and service info, but like every thing else knowlage is only as good as the person using it.shop around before buying.some place may cost more but service is better.I've spent many years and thousands of dollars dealing with both factory parts and aftermarkt.
2004 Mars red C230 sport sedan

Currently motor is out of car due to factory pistons not likeing 600hp and 15lbs of boost. Being rebuilt with the target of 730hp this time with better parts.
