    So, starter went completely out last weekend, had to quick get one in as wife's car was still in insurance hell. I bought locally at Advance Auto, decient price and all, but 1 major problem. The threads on the starter are wrong. They are course, and the stock starter is fine thread. After destroying the threads by not realizing it at first, it is now drilled out and bolted with a nut. Just FYI.

    Also just an FYI, I needed one in a hurry couple years back and C-Dan got one to me next day. Not saying you should have waited but just sharing my experience.
