I am looking for an ultrabay harddrive caddy for my t430s.
Have been looking around in the internet and only found offers between 30-40€.
Do you know any place where I could get a cheap one from? Any recommendations?
I would appreciate your help a lot.

I bought this one: 9.5mm Bezel SATA 2nd HDD Hard Drive caddy bay for T400s T500 T410s X200 43N3412. It's a copy of the real thing but it fits and works perfectly in my T430s.

The 9.5mm adapter will work, however, you will have a gap above the bezel when installed in your Thinkpad. The best solution is the 12.7mm Ultrabay Adapter (sometimes called a caddy). It fits perfectly and leaves no gap, and will hold any 2.5-in drive from 9.5 to 12.5mm.
Yeah, it will cost a bit more, but you will have a more elegant solution for your T430s.

The 7mm HD that came with my T430s fits nicely inside the caddy as does a standard 9.5mm HD from another ThinkPad.
