gmpartsdirect.com. Yes, the shipping is high, but the price + shipping is still way less than from your local dealer. I've ordered OEM parts from them and they ship out quickly.

Luke at Lindsay Cadillac (a site vendor) also consistently gets good reviews on the site.

You might wish to give the parts dept. at McCauley chev buick in North Carolina a try.( phone number ( 704) 982- 2191)
A guy I know seems to think they just might have the best prices!

Worth a call I suppose?

Problem if your in Canada they will not ship to you (gmpartsdirect.com), if you use gmpartsdirect.ca you get hosed with the outrageous prices! Free trade my a**! lets see dollar is almost par but we can gouge the Canucks for at least 50-100% more, what b.s. that is.

PartsTaxi.com

I haven't found a place that can beat their prices on OEM GM parts. They are not as fast as Luke though.

Just got off the phone with Luke, to order the front black bumper trim part. Man even with shipping it was almost 100 bucks cheaper then the dealer here was charging.

Good guy! ;)

When I called the 888 number it disconected me, the dispatch guy said it prob would, so I called back on the non 888 number listed in luke's profile and dispatch was able to connect me.

Nice guys, can't wait to put the trim on.

I have used rockauto.com. Very good prices. So far happy with them and you can return any part that has not been installed.
