    Default Canadian pricing for GM parts direct... ?

    What do you folks do to get good pricing for parts. GM Parts Direct (US) has the homelink overhead console (25977643) for $190US (the Can dollar is stronger right now), the Canadian Gm parts direct is $426. I can see a couple of bucks but come on that is outrageous! I wish GM parts direct (US) would ship to Canada. Anyone figured away or is there another business that can do it?

    You pay someone in the US to buy it they get it then ship it up to you as a Gift... You should save about $200.00 US...

    That is what I was thinking but as I am a newbie on here I do not know many folks. I would be willing to pay a "buyers" fee as well!

    What is your location? I know of a shipping depot at the Port Huron/Sarnia border.
