Default Discount parts in Canada?

Does anyone know a place in Canada where one can get lower cost parts for
Toyotas?
Thanks

Look in your Yellow Pages. I'm not sure where you are in New Brunswick,
probably in the northern part, but outside of eBay you won't find any
significant savings anywhere compared to what you'd get from a local UAP
outlet or even Canadian Tire.

You might find US suppliers that are cheaper, but once you factor in the
freight and exchange, you're losing money.

South. Moncton.

I have had an "experience" with Canadian Tire and they most likely won't see
me again in their shop.
My mechanic usually gets his parts at Robert K. Buzzell.

Interesting. A trace to your IP (which is pingable) goes to
alnb-ar02-f1-0-0.aliant.net

So what town near you starts with "al"?

Hey, me neither. If I want cheap Chinese shit, I'll go to the Cheap Chinese
Shit Auto Parts Outlet.

So were you just looking for some place to get parts cheaper than you
mechanic gets them?

If John Kerry is elected, he'll insure Americans are able to get lower
priced Canajun auto parts.

I'm not John Kerry and I've approved this message.

Wouldn't you think your mechanic would have found that already?

You won't pay the same as him in any case because he's buying as a business
and you're buying retail.
