Spend your time and shop around.
Supporting vendors are good for standard parts, like oil filters and bushings, but their catalogs suck when it comes to rare parts.
I found local indy warehouse that do over the counter sales. MB coolant cost $17 just as a comparison. The experienced guy not only knows what he sells, has a computer with all the parts listed on it, but will even come to the car to confirm that this is the part.
When you have part number -everybody can give you a quote, but after the famous Russian site closed -this is harder to get now.
