Parts in my area?

Hello. I wanted to know if there was a place in the tampa bay area where I can buy parts for my 2003 325i. I haven't called the dealer yet but I wanted to try to find some store or website nearby that sells these parts. I just wanted to try to get them for the "right" price and in time. I need to buy my lower radiator hose by friday. I am changing my water pump, thermostat, belts, air filter, and cabin air filter and I wanted to replace the lower rad house while everything was out. I need to have it on or before this friday. Does anyone know where I can get this part (part number 11531436408)? Please let me know. Thanks.

I have already checked advanced auto, autozone, and o'reiley and they only have the cheap, generic brands that don't fit properly

First of all I like to recommend that you not buy parts from AutoZone or other parts houses. The quality of their parts is suspect at best. I typically buy my parts from places such as pelican parts, ECS tuning, and Autohaus AZ.

Did you check with a NAPA parts house vs. dealer pricing?

I ended up just buying the hose from the dealer today. No one had one that would fit, and now I know that it is a genuine bmw hose.
