Default Feeler Thread Need NASIOC Input

Hey guys I need some of your input. I have recently been approached by a few of the companies who supply aftermarket goodies such as ARP, Magnaflow, K&N, Rally Armour and a TON of other lines. This is also my background which I am very familiar in.

BUT where this community comes in is to tell me if I should of shouldn't start offering these parts. I can build package deals with OEM parts included also so it might be a win win for the consumer. I can for certain know the volume I will do with the aftermarket performance shops will no where clear what they do so my prices may not be the best so I am being honest there. I know there is a bunch of vendors on here already for that.


So tell me what you think? Also locals can pick up and so on and so forth.


-Adam

I'd stick with oem.

Tons of these other vendors already have these crazy partnerships and drop ship all their parts. Seems like every last vendor sells the same exact part over and over, special deals on the same exact parts. It's stupid.

Just be the best oem vendor you can be (not many of those type).

JMHO.

These are the opinions I am looking for . I may offer a select few items but not all the lines like everyone else. There are a few select ones I may have a good grip on

I know a lot of us 08+ sedan (especially wrx) owners are unhappy with our trunks. If you check the trunk trade threads you'll see this. A lot of us sedan owners want wingless or the STi spoiler. It'd be great if you could offer these in a group buy or at a nice discount... IMO I'd do feeler threads to figure out desired OEM parts and then do group buys on them at a discount... Perhaps look into getting genuine Subaru jdm parts as well...??

This is in the works. I am trying to contact Japanese dealers since I can't get them from SOA.

I think that is your best bet. Japanese parts.

Even though just oem, there is a HUGE market for JDM OEM parts. Japanparts used to be a huge vendor here and has seemed to disappear.

If you can get/offer jdm parts for the 02-current year that would be humongous!!

I support the jdm part proposition... Also, carry cobb products! I live 2 minutes away and that would be cool if I could buy my accessport from Somerset Subaru!

JDM Parts is certainly in the works. Trying to get a solid, reliable source overseas.

Getting Cobb is easy but we have not set up the account as of yet. Still testing the waters with it but we do not know just yet.
