Where to buy original replacement parts for dell XPS 13

I want to buy replacement parts (battery, fan and wifi) for my dell xps 13 (L322x). I want to know what is the best place to buy from.

I looked in ebay, I found them with competitive prices, however, I fear that they are not original.

What do you suggest for me ?

Call Dell Spare Parts.  If you can find the part numbers in advance, that would probably be helpful, but isn't required.  Hopefully a Dell rep will be able to provide you a direct phone number to that group soon.

You may find Dell doesn't stock parts for this system - once a model hits about three years old, Dell generally won't have replacement parts, and this is a five year old system. 

There are a couple of Dell parts resellers -- parts-people.com and discountelectronics.com -- that stock only Dell OEM replacement parts.

That said, there's nothing "Dell" about the wireless card - it's Intel, Broadcom, etc.  Same for parts like drives.

what about Chinese remplacement parts that we find in ebay said original. Are they the same bought in sites that you've referred ? they also one year guarantee.

I'd be careful with AC adapters or batteries - there can be safety issues with non-Dell OEM parts, but remember that just about everything inside of a notebook came from China -- even if OEM.
