Ordering a new MAF

I went to go order a non e-gas MAF from ********************************az today and the price was up $60 from yesterday?! Is that right? Where else could I get a MAF for a decent price?

$240 I think. Is this a better or worse price?

********************************az is a drop ship outfit so their prices are dictated by the drop shipper. Go to a search engine and search auto parts and you'll find several sites that are nearly identical and the prices are all identical.

Check Sunset Porsche. They're great people to deal with, really good prices and forum sponsors to boot.

What is a drop ship outfit?

Drop ship retailers don't actually stock any product. When you place an order, it is forwarded to a wholesaler who ships your order to you with the retailer's packing slip and return address on the package.

There's nothing wrong with it, but you usually won't get the best price through a drop shipper because they're buying items one at a time when you order them. Also, anybody can set up a web store as a drop shipper so they don't have to know anything about the auto parts they sell. It's a great way to do business, though, if you don't have a place to store product and the manpower to ship it all out.
