    Just choose the one that you most often buy parts from, and for those who feel like it, say why it is you buy there; price, service, quality, selection, location, etc...

    Thanks. /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    Prefer the little Ma'n Pa salvage yards. But if it's one of those "Gotta be new" parts, I tend to go to the small local partshouse. I avoid crapa if at all posible.

    My vote for "other" was because I usually go to a franchise business called "Parts-Hut Bumper-to-bumper." Not sure if it's just a Mid-west thing though.

    I usually get my parts from Pep Girls because I get the "homey discount" from my friends who work there. If I have to pay full price /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif, Kragen has usually been the place that I get my parts from, but then again, car quest is where I always end up getting those hard to find parts.... But for those gotta have it now parts, I buy from auto zone because they are right down the street from me and they tend to be open later than most other stores. So as you can see I am VERY picky as to where I get my parts from /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif When I'm a millionaire I will open a chain of 24hr auto parts stores! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I get the Employee discount at Baxter Auto Parts. They get everything through Performance wherehouse in PDX and Seattle. Plus I live less than half a mile away from it so i only go there. Our local schucks has nothing but retards working there. At least two employees come into our store regularly to buy stuff, that they can get because they have exactly the same sources as us. And they buy out our stuff and re-sell higher to their customers. MORONS!

    I'm gonna crap my pants when I have to pay full price for parts again.

    For important stuff I go to napa ,parts plus ,or car quest there all locally owned and cater more to trucks and equipment in the town I live in more expensive but better parts and I always get the right parts for stuff like filters, oil, plugs,wires,Or anything I KNOW for sure what the part# is I go to checkers .....Autozone S@#$s a big one and so do there "LIFETIME WARRANTY" what good is the warranty if the crap brakes every 2 weeks starters and alternators are the worst from them rarely last over 2months and the manager here sucks.. /forums/images/graemlins/truck.gif

    I used to hit the discount shop But I got tired of them not having the right part. So now I shop NAPA for my parts.

    I shop Autozone because they have a lifetime warranty on most things and they are usually the cheapest.
