Fred Beans is all over the GTO and Corvette web forums selling discounted parts. Why don't we have a dealer? Lindsay? Moore? Certainly someone can step up. Here's the opportunity:

Carbon Fiber Dress up kit
Polished 7 spoke rims
Corsa Exhaust
FG2 shocks
Rotor Kit
Highway Emergency Kits
First Aid Kits
CTS-V front facias - For non-V CTS's
Countless little pieces for personal repairs

Certainly we've all bought something from the list above. I just wish I could buy it from a supporting dealer vs. GMPD.

Fred Bean will sell you Caddy parts at dealer net. Most of my parts to fix up the hydrolocked V came from him.

I replaced the rubber piece along the front of the V after a chunk was found missing. $30 something plus my own labor vs. the dealer wanting $150.

Not To Say I Will Never Buy. I Just Never Bought Anything From That List. Lol. Parts From A Dealer Are Over Priced. We Do Need A Discount Supplier

Not to bash Fred Bean but they kept me waiting for a month on parts that never arrived. They of course charged my credit card right away. I did get my credit so I'm whole it was just the communication or lack of and the waiting. The longest I've waited for a part from GMPD has been 8 days. I'd just rather send my money to a supporting dealer vs. GMPD. So far GMPD has $3,500 of my dollars over the last year. Various other mod's have totalled another $3,000, but at least these guys are sponsors.

I brought up the same thing regarding a discount parts supplier several months ago. Ended up ordering my FG2 suspension from Beans.

I especially need a supplier of parts since I am in Italy. I just got a reality check seeing 1 quart of Mobile 1 synthetic for 15 Euros. That's just over $18.00 dollars per quart and $110.00 for a 6 qt oil change. I hope replacement brake pads, rotors, and air/ oil filters are not that bad.

I used to pay $1,300 per year for insurance in Florida but now I pay $6,300!

So yes.... would love to see a dealership step up to the plate and offer discount parts.

Dal slabaugh is great. He always comes through for me at great prices (when shipping makes sense)

Sorry to drag up an old thread, but I just ordered a bunch of stuff from Dal; been using him since 96 for my Impala...he can beat GMpartsdirect on just about everything and is a pleasure to deal with. His number is 1-877-448-5451 and his email is stated in a prior post to this thread, above.

We Do!

Vera Cadillac...Remember that VseriesTech guy these guys are great on prices..

Unfortunately you guys deleted him on the board cause he wasn't in agreement with some of the tune results you guys had on here...

Sad really someone call that guy an appologize.
