Why do the extra work of using 2 sites?

I tried your method and looked up an intake hose. Cost is like $48 using your site. Went to AutoPartsWAY.com, looked up the same part, cost $7.

There's a way to go. I'm more than a bit amused these dealership folks don't understand the difference between OE (genuine) and OEM (aftermarket). They advertise OEM but actually sell OE.

I am looking for parts I'm sure only a dealer will have, or can get - (124) L Headrest Adjust Knob, Luggage Compartment Covering (I'd say trim, but who am I?) both sides, Left side panelling (think engine undertray, and know there are other bits on each side keeping dirt out, etc....

Dealer names, anyone? Thanks
Indeed many parts are dealer only. Nearby and out-of-state is always good to avoid sales tax - hence the Ft. Lauderdale suggestion. But I also mentioned Annapolis. MD. Others include Benzel Bush in NJ, Park Place in Dallas, one in Oregon, Caliber Motors in LA used to be good. But parts.com is a dealer network and has the best prices for bigger items - perhaps not always the best service, do a search herein. For OEM certainly give our sponsors a try.

If you are in the Atlanta area and want to buy stuff locally, there is always Rusty. He can get you both dealer parts and OEM parts.
