    On parts designed for wear and tear, I usually take the opportunity to upgrade said worn out part with an aftermarket upgraded replacement. ie brakes, plugs, plug wires, suspension components, etc...
    However, I do prefer OEM. At least with American Made vehicles.

    I purchase for a local parts store, right part everytime. I used them when I was a service manager and customers did not want to pay Chrysler parts prices. These guys have real parts, Moog, Wagner, etc and they purchase direct for the manufacture.

    Sorry to hear you buy from Napa. But then not everyone knows the whole story about Napa. Personally I left them off the list for a reason. To me they are like owning a Ford

    It just depends on the part. I'll usually do the research (read: ask on here) to figure out the best options and go wherever it's available and least expensive.
