    Ok gents, long story short here we go. Got my 2000 X back in 2016 and she’s been my baby ever since, and then a month ago was hit by a woman backing into me and State Farm totaled it (they’ll total these old Xs for a broken headlight pretty much), and now have a list of parts I need. Specifically a new radiator, thermo, hoses and what not, was just going to have a shop do it until they all tried to charge me 1000$+ for the job! So here I am, bought the service manual yesterday and I’m doing everything myself from here on out. Fed up with dealerships and dishonest mechanics, so my question to you all is which is the best avenue for ordering parts? I can’t let my baby die but I can’t afford to piss away a grand everytime something goes wrong either! Thanks in advance.

    Rock auto is a normal go to for me. Car-part.com will search junkyards for parts as well.

    My only issue with Rockauto is shipping can get you where ordering multiple parts. You have to pay for each package they send you, and it will add up real quick. car-part is pretty good, and I've had good luck with partsgeek.com as well.

    Rockauto is where I'd probably start, not sure about the 1st gens but I know on 2nd gens the aftermarket thermostats usually give people problems. Don't forget to Google for a 5% off code, they're all over the place and on big orders help a lot.
