Question Canadian Online Vendors??

I feel like an idiot for asking this and I'm likely to get raped for it.. But are there any good canadian online vendors for performance bmw products?? I have a rather large shopping list of things I was planning on buying from Turner Motorsport, but its going to be a rather large hassle for me and my shop to have it brought over (we have another company that will run everything over to us, but in a nutshell it is more complicated than just that). So, before I purchase these from across the border and send my money to the wrong country, where in Canada can I find this stuff??

Thanks in advance,
Corey

Just order it online, because most vendors do, they never have anything in stock, so if you have to wait just order it youself pay the fees minus the mark up. Try to get a 50/50 blow off valve local vendors never heard of one, try to order bushings takes a week+ and they dont want to deal with you because your car is old to them, I ordered power flex bushings online came in 4 days.

Could you clarify? Do you mean order it directly from the supplier??

I wanted powerflex bushings for my legacy, ordered it directly from Powerflex online, local supplier told me couldn't get it for my car but powerflex had the product listing on line. Here are some well know suppliers on the forums.

You can also try www.eurosporttuning.com, they have a well stocked warehouse in Oakville.

I find autopartsway so expensive... pelicanparts from the states was 120 including shipping via USPS, whereas autopartsway ended up coming out around 190 (even with free shipping and the 5% discount coupon)

Autopartsway can be expensive, but I got a couple of things there that were dirt dirt cheap. I got a complete head gasket set for the M3 for $140 and a 911 Turbo HFM for $300. I bet, you will not find prices like this even in the states.

So shop around.
