    Default Auto parts online - what's the current favorite?

    I'm getting back into doing my own work on autos, and I wondered where the current favorite place to get car parts for "normal" cars and trucks was.
    Autopartsway, canadapartsonline, partsavatar and Amazon all rank high on Google. But that's not saying much.

    Thoughts?

    Current need is front rotors and pads for an odyssey.

    RockAuto for me. Even then, why not just go to NAPA or something? Then you don't have to wait on things to be shipped?

    Napa wanted $260 for a wheel speed sensor and RA wanted $115 with shipping within 2 days. Local prices for stuff is bloody robbery.

    I use local suppliers at times, and I'm open to checking prices, but in this case I have ample time to get some things shipped.

    I has Worldpac account but EDM tho. Most of my techs always get me to order stuff from Warehouse Services, Altrom or Worldpac and Dash Distributor. Not sure if they deal with the public though.

    Well imagine if instead of writing that letter to the editor, she just posts on a car forum for car enthusiasts. That's Kritafo.

    usually if I need a part in a pinch, its not worth ordering online, being that autovalue, Lord, Napa are all closely priced and use basically the same supply chain.

    Now if I need a specific part, I acctually check wreckers because sometimes its not worth spending OEM prices for that part for an older vehicle and I do this via car-parts.com

    RockAuto is what I use most of the time. You can usually find a 5% discount code online, not much but it's better than nothing.

    +1 for RockAuto. As long as you can wait a few days their prices are usually much better and they have lots of selection.

    Autopartsway for me. They have a warehouse in Calgary now, so their free shipping gets me my parts consistently on the next day with no duty, brokerage, etc.. My parts are all for German cars, so the dealer prices are insane. Going to NAPA or Partsource is a joke because they either won't have what I need, or it will take more time to get it. They never beat online for price anyway, so I've given up on them unless it's an emergency and a part they might have. RockAuto is a close second and I'll cross shop if it's a big order, but it takes a bit longer to get the parts.

    Another +1 for rockauto.


    A second option is checking forums for guys that post links to deals. For example, the brakes for my car are a silly amount at the dealer, and a still-silly amount at local places, and OEM can't be found on rockauto. But there's a brake thread on the forum I'm on where guys have posted links to ebay sellers that give killer deals on the OEM brakes for my car, as well as periodic sales (kinda like RFD threads).

    I'll keep that in mind for my next order. Your website doesn't list any parts, so do I have to make a list and email it to you? I'm in Beaumont, so I'd still need shipping.

    Working on getting that added. But for now easiest is emailing a list

    Also have a link to the Altrom Catalog: https://store.gtrauto.ca/pages/oem-parts

    Is Altrom not just repackaged parts? Sort of like Beck and Arnley? I find it's hard to judge quality if I don't know who actually manufactured it.
