It's 11:30. Do you know where your parts are coming from?

Not that it really matters, but I think Fastlane, The Benzbin and Parts Bin are all the same company. I want to support the sponsors of this forum but all these guys sure do look alike!

I think it's due to the interface. Think about it, though. Why re-invent the wheel? They might be separate companies that bought software from the same vendor. A vendor that sold one, showed it to the others, and they bought it.

Or, they might be the same company.

Either way, I bought some stuff here, and was pleased with the service and pricing. So I don't care.

I believe it is the same main distributor, but pricing is different for different companies I believe.

I have found other sites with same fastlane interface. One parts supplier can be supplying parts to numerous sources, with the same interface they provide.

Partsshop and fastlane are two seperate stores on this site.

Regardless, I will order from fastlane or partsshop over the others, because ordering from here, helps to support this site which has a wealth of information you just wont find at the other guys.

Well, I will tell the truth.


The way it works is simple. PartsShop, we invented and run...

FastLane is an interface that was developed by a wholsaler and many other companies use to purchase from that central Wholesaler, but the profits come to and are used by MercedesShop and no one else!!

We have our own price structure and we can dictate who we sell to and buy from.

I agree that the fastlane looks the same as other vendors, but we don't work with anyone....We are
