I found a place www.buyautopartsonline.ca

Established within the last 2 years.

I want to replace the other five injectors on my 911 SC after one failed.

These guys quoted $59.19 for a Standard Motors Products (Blue Streak) injector.

Autopartsway is charging $82.76 for a Bosch.

Anybody have a review on Standard Motors parts?



All other parts I compared were cheaper too.

Parcel rec'd January 20th, 2016. The shipping origin was indeed Florida. The package label indicated AES Exemption NOEEI 30.37(a) which can indicate a number of possibilities but was most likely (I think): A shipment (regardless of value) is going to Canada and does not require an export license.
The shipping package was a bubble envelope. The product -- a new fuel filter for one of my 924s' was in one piece.

Final update:

New order placed for a PS reservoir to fit my '87 924s on January 10th, 2016

Parcel rec'd January 21st, 2016. Point of origin was Florida. I did not pay duty.

Thought I'd have a look. Not only did they have what I was looking for (a 'new' power steering pump) but the price was most favourable.

update: While the site implied that the item was in stock, it wasn't; however, my order wasn't cancelled. Instead, I rec'd an email to let me know their willingness to get it from the US and send it to me after arrival. The price didn't change only the ETA did. I'm happy.

Frequently the Canadian sites indicate 'no stock' or 'call for pricing' which are euphemisms for 'we don't have any and can't get any'. They also accepted PayPal which means I didn't have to put my phone down and go find my wallet.

Standard Motor Parts (SMP) manufactures and distributes a large number of brands including BWD and InterMotor. Within the SMP line there is a budget line known as the T series while the premium line is branded as InterMotor. What's the difference? Here's a response from the company that someone posted on a different forum:

"Thanks for contacting us. In general, we use better quality materials in our premium line vs. our Economy “T Series” products. For example, our first line will use solid copper or brass terminals for the electrical connectors, whereas the second line will use plated steel. This allows the part to function longer, with less effects of corrosion and better conductivity. We also use better quality plastics. For example our distributor caps and coils use high glass content polyester for the first line, whereas our second line uses polypropylene. They both will work, but the high glass content plastic has higher endurance and resistance to voltage punch-through and tracking. The wire that we use in the first line has a higher temperature rating than the second line. This decreases the failure rate at very high temperatures, and again creates higher endurance.

Both product lines are good quality, however, our premium line is made to last longer via better materials and manufacturing processes. We have plants and suppliers from all over the USA and the world. Some of our first and second line products are imported. We do tend to manufacture the first line in the USA, Poland, Japan, or Mexico. However, we have many high quality suppliers in Asia and elsewhere. I hope this has answered your question. "

Hey curtisr,
I have many good experiences with several of the companies on your list.
I would like to add:

Exoparts.com (based in Mississauga, Ontario)

They are very competitive in pricing OEM and authentic German parts for Porsches.

Best regards.

I saw some referral traffic from this site in our analytics this morning, so I thought I'd reach out and see where we were linked.

For full disclosure, I run BuyAutopartsOnline.ca, so if any of you have specific questions about our site, pricing, shipping policies etc. please PM me and I can try to help you out.

Frequently the Canadian sites indicate 'no stock' or 'call for pricing' which are euphemisms for 'we don't have any and can't get any'. They also accepted PayPal which means I didn't have to put my phone down and go find my wallet.
Most sites would rather sell what they have in-stock or try to entice you into calling, where they can do an interchange lookup and see what's available. We decided to go the other way, where we'd turn on the entire catalog of parts and list out of stock as "may ship." We can't guarantee that we can get the part (most are simply discontinued), but a lot of our customers would rather gamble and place the order than never get the part.

In this instance, the part wasn't available from our local distributor, so we would have called Standard/Blue Streak and they'll direct ship from their warehouse to us. It usually adds an extra week or two, but the customer isn't charged any additional fees.

Was doing some window shopping for rotors and the above company caught my eye, so I looked into it some more.... there are more than a few recent terrible reviews of this vendor online..... so better stay away....

Better yet maybe @curtisr can edit them out of the list so members here don't accident buy from them
