Oddly enough, if you walked into the front door of Sunset and asked for a price on that same part you'd be amazed at how much more it would cost you.

Sunset does not offer those wholesale prices to retail walk-up customers for some reason. I'm sure it has something to do with non-compete agreements with other local dealerships on local business.

This may be why you can't get anyone local to price match for you. Just a guess.

Now if you walked into any Pcar dealership owned by Sonic (both dealerships in Houston are owned by Sonic), you may find they charge 3 times what Sunset charges for a part... astronomically priced OVER full retail. This conglomerate loves to rape its customers.

Sunset rocks. I buy a lot from them and the shipping is always reasonable.
