Rallysportdirect is nice, have looked around when buying stuff and noticed their prices are good. I did however save some money buying hawk hps pads on amazon, they were cheaper there.

A few I've had good experiences with are importimageracing, fastwrx, iag, flatironstuning

For OEM parts I like 1stsubaruparts. They're significantly cheaper than going to the dealer, but might take a little bit longer. Iwire is a great source for things like connectors, which tend to break a lot if you're working with an older car.

There are certain shops that cater to the Subaru tuner community, they also sell oem parts such as rallysport or import image but one thing i should mention is that when it comes to fitment of parts for certain model years, they are lousy. For example, a short shifter that will realistically fit an 02-07 wrx, there website will say, only made to fit 02-05 wrx. Then you call to question them because you read on the forums that this same piece should fit my 07 wrx, there customer service will just give you the company line & regurgitate what ever they've been told.

On the other hand a company like Oakos, has great pricing and anytime ive ever had to call them for a question regarding a part or fitment of a part, i get someone knowledgeable who goes above and beyond (actually finds answers i couldn't) & will even call you back with an answer.

Nothing against the others, but oakos gets my service the majority of the time.

Other companies that sell a vast amount of quality parts is "turn in concepts".

https://www.fastwrx.com/ is a great place to shop as well. Dan (Mach V Dan here on Nasioc) has always been super helpful and really knows his stuff. Hes posted some general FAQs that have been really helpful to the community at large.

I'm lucky enough that they're my local shop, and I honestly wouldn't want to deal with anybody else. ****ing amazing group of folks over at Mach V, always eager to help out!

For me, I usually shop at Amazon (I forget which shops they are but there are several tenants), Oakos Automotive, SubieSpeed, eBay stores that are linked to Subaru dealers for maintenance parts.

Otherwise I just buy direct from the manufacturer like Cobb, Kartboy, etc.
