GO & NO GO aftermkt Accsy websites?

Ordering a new car with minimal add-on's. Plan to order Illum. Side Sill plates, and several other "typical" accessories. Probably weathertech floormats. Anyway, question is what are the recommended and NOT recommended online sites for this stuff ? If you ordered something and then got dissed I don't want to make the same mistake? If you had a great experience I want to consider that company too. 0-5 star rating, whatever. Oh yeah it's for a 2013 OB 3.6R Limited w/moon & Nav, Int. Illum. Kit & Puddle Lts.
Thanks for your input

I've had good luck with both subarugenuineparts.com and fredbeansparts.com

also, got some used and some new parts from ebay - cargo nets, roof crossbars, etc.

SubaruOnlineParts.com Has a very good reputation. They are a sponser of this site. Competitive pricing on parts and shipping as well as occasional deep discount sales.

I'm not happy....till you're not happy

I've had good experiences with SubaruPartsWarehouse.com sign up for their newsletter and they have coupons available quite frequently. They tend to be the lowest price when I shop around.

as a suggestion, I've had my local dealership match, and 'almost' match prices against online dealers in 2 instances.

I agree with Subaru Parts Warehouse.

Accessory manufacturers seem to be expanding into offering direct shipping. You may want to check the manufacturer website as it can cut cost and the middle man.

I don't know about some of you, but I have had 2 sets of WeatherTech floor liners and they both did the same thing. Curled up. I think it may have been the Texas summer heat more than anything baking them in the car. Anyone else? Cause I was considering giving them another shot. Definitely easier to clean than scrubbing the carpet liners.

Have you ever looked into Husky's floor mats? They are a little less expensive and I think are just as good as WeatherTech's.

Yes some dealers actually are very competitive on prices, especially if you order accessories when getting a new vehicle. Dealer price for me was actually less than FredBeans, plus I did not have to pay for shipping. My sales rep hooked me up with deal.

Mods: STi 19MM rear sway bar, STi pedal set, GT Spec rear strut brace, LED lights, Forester stainless exhaust tips, Alpine 235BT, JL Audio speakers, Dynamat Xtreme, Subtle dead pedal, Bosch ICON wiper blades, stealth turn signal bulbs, Cree LED DRL's, SAP Edition headlights
