    Hey Guys!
    Just curious, has anyone purchased any aftermarket parts off of Ebay? I need everyone's input... The Good, The Bad, The Ugly...

    Thanks

    I bought some clear corner lights once and I was happy with them even though they were manufactured and sold by some asian company Ive never heard of. I would buy of Ebay if your buying a good brand name product, but be careful about off brand products.

    there are alot of great deals on EBAY. Just be sure to check the sellers rating. Also shop around on the internet. In some cases you can find it cheaper else where.

    I have bought many things on EBay. The insurance policy is excellent ,when you get a bad vendor, for protection from scam artists.
    By checking Amazon and a few other buying sites you will find some better bargains.
    Do not always trust the ratings. There is one camera company that has to good to be true prices and they sell black market products. This particular company sells under 6 or more different names. Always remember buyer beware.

    I purchase a blower motor from my burb that was new old stock. It was made by Siemens a respected name in electrical equipment. I also purchased a couple of door handles to put on a neighbors truck. They reimbursed me the cost including the shipping to return the parts. The seller made it good shipping the replacements before they received the first set they sent.

    That being said, I always read the fine print and ask questions if something does not sound right.

    I can recommend A1 autoparts. I have bought multiple things off them, and have had nothing but good luck. Some examples of the deals I got:

    99 Jimmy power mirror $48.00
    99 Jimmy oem style chrome grille $38.00
    01 Oldsmobile Alero blower motor and resistor $35.00
    01 Envoy front clip (2 headlights, and grille) $112.00
    01 Oldsmobile Alero hub bearing $35.00

    The best part of all this was it was all free shipping!!!
