Where to buy oil cooler?

I have sprung a leak from the oil cooler on the right side of my 2005 Elise. Where is the best place to order parts for my Elise for best prices and quick shipping?

The search button on this site does amazing things....search until your fingers bleed....I would start with the lubricating section. You may find that it's not the cooler but rather the fitting's. It's a common problem.

clean off the entire area and dry thoroughly. Sprinkle talcum powder or Desenex around the cooler & fitting. start car and you'll instantly see from where the leak is coming.

The best oil cooler price I got was at my Hopewell, NJ dealer.
