I know that I have mentioned this in the past, but there are still some shops that have not heard of Parts Link or More OEM Parts. It allows you to have access to the GM, Ford, Chrysler, Honda, Acura, & Nissan parts catalog for FREE! It is the same catalog we use at the dealership. It also gives you Part Number, List Price, your cost from whatever dealer you selected, and if your selected dealer has it in stock. And did I mention it is FREE! To sign up go to www.moreoemparts.com
or call me and next time I visit I will set it up for you, for free of course. If you have any questions or concerns please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
and I promise to get back to you.
