Recommendations for Service Parts?

I'm planning a 60K mile service on a my 6-month old (to me) 1999. I'm still not to 50K, but I'm a bit of a maintenance worrier, so...

Does anyone have any recommendations for a source for OEM filters/plugs/belt? The prices at Pelican Parts didn't seem too bad (I was expecting worse), but I just wanted to see if anyone had 'the' source that I was missing?

Thanks, and thanks for participating on the forum - I've got a few toys so I peruse different boards, and I'd never found one anywhere close to as helpful as this one.

I mainly buy from Pelican because of Wayne's support to the Porsche community. That said, many on this forum recommend Sunset, as they sell for litttle over cost and are very helpful.

I placed my first order with Pelican, they were very helpful and their service was better then expected. I'll be using them again.

Sunset is great, I use them when I need dealer only parts.

Here's another great source:
