Ok so I use Autopartsway.ca, importcarpartscanada.com, autopartsonlinecanada.com.

But I was wondering how are the local part stores like Carquest, Part Source, NAPA, etc.

I am interested in parts for BMW, VW, MB and Toyota.

Any recommended place?

I use autopartsway as well, but then I decided to drop by Canadian Tire to check prices there. I gotta say I'm glad I did.
$21 per rotor and $22 for pads for my sunfire.

Autopartsway had rotors for $32 each and pads for $42

crappy tire is more expensive than VW dealer by $100

crappy tire is more expensive than Autopartsway by $200

I think for BMW, autopartways is cheaper but for domestic it should be cheaper at CT?

Shop around. One place wont offer you the best deals all the time. I got some amazing deals at autopartsway, but it's not always the cheapest place. For example like I said above CT was cheaper than them, then for I've seen cheaper prices at Corner73.
Smartest thing is to shop around.

SickFinga is right. Partsource is crappy tire. Napa has decent prices and has most of the stuff youre lookin for in stock. Watch out for a newer company which is supposed to be canadas largest independent automotive parts supplier. I think its called Uniselect.
