I have bought quite a few things from the PartsShop. The prices are very competitive; sometimes less expensive, slightly higher (after shipping) other times. They have always stood behind what they sold me, and offered tips and advice on installation of parts. What is it worth to get 2-10 enthusiasts and/or techs diagnostic opinions BEFORE you start a job on your car? Even if the parts cost a bit more than locally, I would probably still buy from PartsShop, just to support the site which has saved me so much money and provided so much information and entertainment. I would buy from them again, for whatever that is worth.
