My new rx8

Hey guys I'm new to the rotor world. At first I was incredibly excited to own the car I've lusted after since they came out in 04. Being just a young guy I figured an 04 rx8 was a good car for me to have that would get me to work and back for at least two-three years. I was wrong, I purchased a winning blue rx8 that now needs an engine replacement, a starter, and since last nights encounter a front bumper(anyone used before)? My car is still under the engine warranty it is at 127xxx kms. But mazda will not warranty my engine? any tips? I've seen on here that the warranty is an 8 year 160 000 kms. Anyways i was just wondering where everyone goes for parts over the internet for upgrades/accessories/replacement parts (ie starter) Also if anyone has any tips on starter replacement all help is appreciated.

Mazmart has most parts and good prices. I believe also has low prices on stock parts.

Ouch, sorry about that. Perhaps you should have started here before buying. An 04 with 127 000km on the odo !!! Many would have discouraged the sale. Unless you enjoy getting under the car once in while. Check the "For Sale" section of this forum. But before you buy check the "good guy/Bad guy" section so you can identify vendors with good/poor service.
