Just wondering where you guys normally get your oem replacement parts from? It would be nice if we could make a list here of all our "sources" so maybe we can all help each other out.

I know theres gonna a few people that might not agree with me but Ebay is actually a good place to get oem replacement parts. Just make sure to check their rating and any negative feedback. So far I've saved a good amount of money buying on Ebay and never had a problem.

Ebay a good place I just don't like bidding, and waiting. Just give a good cheap solid price, and I'm happy.

Me personally I buy everything from the dealership. It cost a lot more but at least it wont affect any warranty I might still have. Plus you always know its 100% genuine oem parts.

So far my usual places "Autozone/Pepboys" don't have any parts yet. So everything is from the local studio right now.

Just adding to the post, Good luck with certain parts from the dealer, not in stock/ no eta. simple stuff like lower control arms, we are still waiting almost 2 months for this part left front control arm. we can not drive the car. good luck to anyone who needs hard parts. your car will sit. If I have to wait any longer Fiat should buy back my car or replace it.

sorry about your parts issue, but I have replied on your other thread as to what YOU and your DEALER MUST DO to get your parts. you and your dealer have not done what I posted. if your dealer doesn't follow proper protocall, then you could possibly still be waiting on your parts for several more months.

as for FIAT buying your car back, not going to happen. your car is 'down' due to no fault of FIATs, in that this vehicle was involved in an accident and my guess is that you may have even purchased this vehicle as a 'total' and are rebuilding it to sell to someone else. otherwise you would have mentioned the accident, which you have not.

again, if you want your parts ASAP, then tell your dealer to put them on VOR status. if your dealer refuses, then find another dealer that will. its not that difficult to do and doesn't cost the dealer a dime. from here on out, this is all on you. if you don't want to follow my suggestion, then pls stop posting about how you can't get FIAT parts.
