May your line be smooth


I hate carparts.com with a passion. Well, since I am not capable of such hatred, I just wont buy anything from them anymore. All my brother and I wanted was gauge pods for our a-pillars and the gauge to go in it. They sent us the wrong ones. We emailed and called many many times but got no straight replies. Just "we are looking into it and will get back to you." I have still heard nothing to this day. Its been months and I am selling the wrong pod and the wrong gauge to my friend. Instead I just ordered the right stuff from a local shop. I dont care how inexpensive the stuff is, if its wrong and they wont change it back, its not worth it. If I had bought something more significant or expensive then I would have sought action against them but I just dont care. I strongly advise everyone to not buy from carparts.com.

Everything I've ordered from carparts.com (Borla muffler, tip, and car cover) has been really cheap (thanks to their coupons), but I've had to wait months for them because of backorder problems.

Their website really tries to cover every product for every car, & that's quite a task.

thats weird. I think they are doing something with theiur computer system as i got an email confirming them shipping the 2nd box of stuff i ordered from them after i got it. Later they sent out a letter saying the emails had gone out at the wrong time etc.etc.
I got the first box, filter and egt probe the 2nd day after my order, andf i got the egt and boost gauge 2 days after that.
All in perfect condition, + i used a 50 off coupon from another web site....

The one experience I've had with carparts.com was excellent. I ordered my Sport 8000's from them, and used the $100 off coupon they had. Got my tires shipped from Discount Tire Direct, they got here in 4 days, and it cost me @320 including shipping. No complaints here...

As for that blower, however... not quite my thing

I've bought plenty from carparts.com and never had a problem. I ordered brake rotors(2), brake drums(2), set of brake shoes, set of brake pads, and the hardware kits to do a complete brake job on the wife's car, everything came in a timely manner, and all of the parts were the right ones. Considering no one but NAPA (and the dealer)carries any type of Subaru parts in stock local to me, it was easier to order it online!

That was too FUNNY. I almost fell out of my chair laughing.
But , seriously can I really get that to fit in a MY00...

I'm using the $50 off coupon for $112 A250 215/40/16 Yoks ($72.00 shipped) four separate times to get $50 off each tire and saving a butt load of money.
It almost feels like I'm scamming them.

local tire shop = .......................................$488 (includes tax)
carparts.com $448 - $50 +ship = ...............$412
carpart.com $112 - $50 +ship =$72 X 4 = $288 ..Daaamm.

As long as you know exactly what part you need and use a coupon , I say go for it!!
