Buying parts from PeachParts.com

Does anyone know that the difference is between Fastlane and AllPartsExpress?

The question is not about whether one should or shouldn't buy at PeachParts. The question concerns the meaning of the choice of suppliers at PeachParts, Fastlane or All Parts Express. I've always used Fastlane but have wondered what is going on.

I think Phil is associated with both sites. I usually buy from Fastlane but sometimes I use All Parts Express if the price there is much less than at FL.

I would rather support Phil and the site than save a couple bucks going to some importpartsworld.com type place...

Both belong to Peachparts and Phil sells for both.

The catalogs are different and the parts come from different suppliers. You might find some parts for less in one store and other parts for less in the other store.

It's best to price out your parts in both stores or just contact Phil and he'll find the best deal for you. Phil can sometimes get you a better deal than either catalog shows.

Yes exactly right. I called Phil on a part , he had someone call me with a price far less than the catalog (A mint used part). I have delt with Phil 3-4 times and have been thrilled. I refered a friend to him for his BMW and he too was very happy.
