    I found a site on the net for Santa Cruz subaru. Just fill out what parts
    you need and an estimate will arrive shorly. Call them up and bill it to
    your credit card and the parts will be shipped to your door. Great prices
    below dealer list. The parts manager's name is John Romero he's very good
    about getting the right parts and iss knowledgable about Subarus. If you
    live in a rural area like I do this is a great way to get OEM parts. I have
    ordered from him twice and received all the right parts post haste. if you
    need parts give this a try.

  2. lots of places to buy Subaru parts on the cheap

    www.subaruparts.com
    www.allsubaru.com
    www.subaruwrxparts.com

    The first one even has a searchable pictorial index of parts for the Impreza
    and SVX, and the second one a database sort of part lookup system (for the
    whole lineup) - prices are right there for both of them - new parts are just
    a few mouse clicks away - no need to wait for an estimate.

    It would be wise to do a google search on the above list
    before getting too excited. Especially the first one...

  4. I agree to an extent - many people have whined about them in the past -
    myself, I have placed over a half dozen orders with them and never had a
    problem - I have ordered mostly small stuff (random parts and such) for my
    WRX - you get a confirmation email when you place the order, another when it
    has been officially entered in, and a shipping notification with the
    tracking number when it goes out. I've bought door handles, trim rings, the
    plates for the brake cooling channels, oil and air filters, crush washers,
    etc. - always get exactly what I ordered, in the timeframe listed on the
    website (the site lets you know if it's in stock, 3-5 days out, or more) - I
    was worried at first when ordering from these guys, but now they have proved
    to be a fast and reliable alternative to the dealer - plus you can look to
    see exactly what you want, and make sure it is what you need, rather than
    hoping the sales guy at the parts counter interpreted what you said
    correctly. This is is an actual dealer in the Northwest.

    I have also purchased from www.subaruwrxparts.com - bought painted
    sidespoilers from them as well as an armrest extension and touch-ip paint.
    Same deal there - you order online, get a confirmation email, and the parts
    show up. No problems at all. They are also a dealer, in Exeter, NH.

    I haven't ordered from allsubaru.com - though they are a dealer as well, and
    one of the moderators from www.nasioc.com works there (she also has her own
    site - www.subiegal.com)

    Have you ordered from any of the above? Did you have any troubles?

    I ordered from subaruparts.com. Nothing but trouble. Late
    late shipment, missing items, customer service that was
    impossible to get hold of. All in all a very unpleasent
    experience. It should not take 2 months to get a shift
    knob and pedal covers.

    Looking at the reviews on nasioc, it looks like they had a bad period a
    little while back - the reviews range from praise to condemnation. They now
    have a rep that frequents the site, though, and things appear to be back the
    way they are supposed to be. As I mentioned, I have placed more than a half
    dozen orders over the past year or so, and have had nothing but good luck
    with them - everything ships when it's supposed to.

    know how good/bad they are)

    and for those hard to find parts might give this a try:
