GTO radiator damaged, need new one. Please offer your advice

Hello everyone.

First of all, I hope I've posted this in the correct section. Forgive me If I haven't. I'm ok with it being moved to its correct forum section if need be.

Anyways, I own a 05 Pontiac GTO. This car has been great to me since I purchased it used from a buddy just over a year ago. It's fulfilled its job quite well, while sparing me any headache. However, just yesterday my car overheated on me. When I got home I inspected its radiator and found that this part was to blame. It showed signs of leakage and a majority of the fins were severely bent. I know that replacement is my only option at this point, but before I do so, I'd like some advice. I've decided to purchase an aftermarket version online, but don't know which companies are reputable. I've found two that I particularly like but before I buy from one of them, I'd like some sort of verification that they are a legitimate business. I almost never buy anything online so I don't know how to spot a scam, and I can't afford to be scammed.

Has anyone dealt with either of the following companies and can verify that they are a legitimate company? The parts on each site match the OEM number of the part I need.. Thanks in advance.

Check this out!! This poser is everywhere and owns just about every kind of car. Ironically, they all seem to have bad radiators:

I have encountered with this kind of problem once when I bought Pontiac GTO. I too had to replace radiator and believe me the place from where I got is excellent. I got it online from auto parts warehouse dot com and Andy's auto sport dot com.

If anyone cares, OpalArmes is a spambot based in India:
http://www.stopforumspam.com/ipcheck/182.68.249.147

abid05@yopmail. com is a spambot based in Pakistan:
http://www.stopforumspam.com/ipcheck/182.185.170.75

Etc., etc.

Basically you've got a page full of 'bots and seo trolls aruguing about who sells the best mail order radiator. Priceless!
