cheap parts in Canada?

Hi all,

As the title states, I'm looking for oem parts supplier in Canada, such as air

filter, oil filter, fuel filter, etc so that I can do the service myself... those parts are

so cheap in the states... does any one know any place in Canada that even come

close to the price in states? Thanks in advance!

There's a couple of places that I'd recommend over ordering from the states.
The one I use the most is Whaletail Canada www.whaletailcanada.com/ tallk to Randy
and another outfit in Laval called Northstar http://www.northstarautorecycling.com

Dealing with Canadian suppliers and you won't get soaked from the customs fees.

cheers!

The word "cheap" and "Canada" do not really go together when it comes to buying things
