Default parts.subaru.com

This the worst place to buy parts. I thought I would buy from here and pick up parts at the local subaru dealer from their inventory. I thought I'd pay a little more but get the parts faster. That is not how it works. The parts are order and then shipped to the dealer.

I ordered my parts on 11/13 and just picked them up yesterday. I got the email that my parts are ready to be picked up this morning. (2 valves and 16 valve stem seals). Not a big deal for me this time since I got covid and haven't felt like doing much but now I'm recovered and ready to put this thing back together.

I won't be using this again.

I've used subarudirectwholesale.com and Amazon which is Subaru Superstore and Genuine Parts Supply with good price and relatively fast shipping.

Use that site to look up part numbers. Then call your local dealer and order those parts using the numbers from that side. You will find that you have a much better experience that way.

Right I agree @ImportImageRacing does ship pretty fast and most of the items are always AVAILABLE. They are pretty much reachable via Email, IG and FB for any inquiries.

YOU DID WHAT! Please tell me you didn't go pick them up and you have Covid. Please tell me that's not what I read and if it is please explain.

Yes. I had covid when I ordered it. But, by the time the parts got here I was already recovered. If they had come in, in a couple of days, I would have sent one of my kids (who had already recovered) for them.

Iíve discovered, the fastest way to get an OEM part is direct from the local Subaru dealer. Here in Tulsa it takes 2 days to get from their Dallas warehouse.
