Where do you guys buy your parts, what brand are they (if not OEM) and what price are you paying?

Air, Oil, Fuel, Micro...filters.

Help with some research please. Thanks.

*mention model of vehicle too please.

Well, if you're talking about regular maintenance parts such as all the filters, i generally buy all of my products from the dealership. You are guaranteed the best fit imo.

If you're talking about performance parts, then thats a different story.
