Exhaust Manifold Cracked - Looking for info.
Currently have another crack along the middle of the exhaust manifold where the top half meets the bottom half. It is the 2nd time the exhaust manifold has a crack, the first time at 34k miles and we replaced with a brand new one. It now has 120k miles. We are trying to not pay the same cost as we did the first time which was somewhere close to $1k or more (cant remember). I'm looking at used parts on ebay and for some reason they are all listed as parts that fit model year 97-00 but we have a 2001. A search online brings up this part #:

Description: 2.3L. Slk230. 2000-04. C230, c350.
What have other members done when there manifolds were cracked? What is the best route for me for lowest cost and will the used parts off ebay that say for 97-00 fit my car. Can I also look for used manifolds from a 00-04 C230 and C350?
