Throttle Body and Water pump down on luck :/

Hello all, i am in a time of need with my car, i havnt had it in 2 months because its been in and out of the body shop because someone slammed my driver door and now its at the mechanics getting worked on.

I have a 2003 330 150k miles and i need a new throttle body and a new water pump.. and a original part would cost me on the throttle body about 400 from bmw + labor, and we still waiting on the water pump.

Does anyone know a place i could buy OEM parts for a lot cheaper?! Please help! I am a firefighter in training and i am having a hard time with money atm. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated

http://www.oembimmerparts.com/produc...444-445e46.htm for the Throttle Body

http://www.oembimmerparts.com/category_s/1863.htm water pumps are here. Most are reasonably priced but there is a High Performance option too for more money.

A lot of us have been buying from this place for quite a while and I have yet to hear of any complains or negative feedback. Max only sells the good stuff.
Both of these jobs you can do yourself. No need to go to the dealer.

Water pump costs $60. Used throttle body is $100-$150. Both can be DIY'd without any real hardship. Videos galore on both on my youtube page.
