Parts Sources

Has anyone used Prime Choice Auto Parts, or Best Price Car Parts?

The former has some wicked prices, the later has good prices and tells you the manufacturer. I know in a lot of cases you get what you pay for, but...


Front Wheel Bearing for my E46:

ECS Sourced OE BMW: $190 (FAG: $120, SKF: $110)
Tischer Sourced OE BMW: $186 (MSRP: $233)
Turner Motorsport Sourced Unknown Manufacture: $120
BPCP: FAG = $160, First Quality Equipment= $81 see here for more info
PCAP: $31 see here for more info

If I can save $100 per side, I will, but the savings are suspect.
Upgrade your grey matter 'cause one day it may matter.

Don't be in such a hurry to condemn a person because they don't do what you do, or think as you think. There was a time when you didn't know what you know today...

I've bought a few times from bpcp. Support is good too- they answer the phone and someone's in Canada. Free shipping over $80 or something like that.

Bought quite a few things from best price car parts. Sometimes they are cheaper, sometimes more expensive. FAG bearings are just made in Stratford so that's why I assumed they could get them cheaper than US sites.
