Europe, and getting parts/tools

So, recently some kid poured a glass of Rosé over the keyboard of my MacBook Pro, and well, you know the story; I need a new Motherboard (or Logicboard) for my Mac.

I've already cleaned it and all, but I had to do it 7 days after the incident because I don't have the tools myself and my friend was rather busy.

I've been doing some looking around for new Motherboards but only found a small few available on ebay, I know that there are a ton buyable in the US from ebay but not here.

Also, other than iFixit, I found no place I could buy thermal paste.

So I was wondering if you guys know a place where I could buy an i5 Motherboard and thermal paste in Europe (preferably one that would export by post, or one in France), since I don't believe I can sum up the money for the importing taxes from the US.

Thanks in advance!

Set this up for Service and you can a local store - ask them for a depot repair - that's the best price you'd get anywhere. Thermal paste is something that any computer repair store should cary - you don't use a different type for each manufacturer... it's like telling us you can't find oil for your car... in any event LMGTFY so you can have it shipped to your door.
