Also, if there is a demand for a certain part, or parts, and PartsShop or Fastlane do not stock that part, chances are they can get the part for you anyway. Hell, I needed a pair of fresh air intake filters for the 108 (try finding those), dealer wanted a bunch of money and a 3 week wait. One call to PartsShop and whicle they didn't have the parts in their database, in just a few days, I had a set at my door (and now the part number is in the database). Fine example of "it never hurts to ask". Granted there may be some things they can't get, but chances are good they can lay their hands on most items.
