Yeah that's their typical business practice. Keep calling, negociate hard, and you'll get it for what you want. They often ask more for a part than it costs new from the dealer, then you come back, it's half that, and so on. It's a really shady joint but the owner is a good guy... this is how you make money in their business - you fish for the suckers. If you're not one of them, let him know. Offer what you think is fair, or even lower, and work up to what you think is fair.

Nice good to know.. thx man! will try...

PS what do u think 2 used door panels should go for? Approx.. I was thinking along the line of 50-100 for both. seeing that people on this forum sell em for about that much.. You think he'd go for that?

Depends on the condition. Should be between 50 and 150 per panel.

Trust me Paul, i'm in the same boat as you, trying to find some mint black e36 coupe door panels for MONTHS.

I'm at the position where i'd go and pay the 200 if the door panels were 100% not peeling

Met shant a number of times. His prices are high sometimes, like everyone says, haggle. But he also has almost everything in stock, which is a big plus.

Funny or not, it's true. The guy wants to make money... sue him. Also some of the guys he's had working there are odd. But Shant himself is a very good guy. I just know when my gas tank started leaking (not just dripping), he sold me a mint one for 120 bucks and let me use his hoist, guiding me in installing it, and even doing some difficult things, and let me eat some BBQ they were cooking out back... the whole time he was helping me his wife kept calling him, asking where he was, he was late to a dinner outing... all to help me, someone he's met for like the 2nd time, do something for free.

door panels + black paint = black door panels

seriously....i bought a flat black vinyl paint and did my tan dash and panels and it matched the rest perfectly.

i believe VHT vinyl paint is just as good (cant remember the name of the paint i used)

I got him to $800 for a M30 engine with less than 100k. True he does have some attitude issues tho.
