I ran across this online parts store while researching brake and suspension parts for my Riviera.

https://afteroem.com

Prices seem to be almost too good to be true.

Has anyone had any experience with this retailer?

Thanks

I hadn't heard of them either, but a use of their search function revealed little, if anything for the Riviera, and a very muddled listing of applicable vehicles for a given part.

Looks scammy to me - I can't find an impressum or physical address on the site -- so let's just say no.

Misspelled words are common in scam sites. Modle vs. Model.

The vendors that advertise on this site (see the "Dash" page) are a starting point. I've bought from all except PFYC.

I'd add, the GM dealers who have 'discount parts' web pages such as gmpartsdirect.com are a place to look, too. One wrinkle in that would be that some very large dealers like Bob Tasca's tascaparts.com sometimes have caches of obsolete parts in stock, although not as much as they used to.

Here is some background on Tasca Parts. Bob Tasca Sr. (died 2010) was an enthusiast and drag racer as well as car dealer. I was told that he firmly thought that people ought to be able to maintain their own cars (in spite of what the MBAs at factory corporate would prefer) and without being noisy about it made it reasonable to do so by getting closeout lots and warehousing/reselling them. I could get air suspension parts there, at reasonable price, for my son's Lincoln Continental for quite some time after the local dealer declared them unobtainium. For my Volvo, they have/will get for me the maintenance parts for, for instance, the Haldex AWD unit, that don't show on their (or anyone else's) site. Their pricing is fair enough; you may find them easier to deal with via telephone than via web order.

Don't leave your local GM dealer out. They are fairly competitive on things like batteries, brake pads, and such. For unplanned maintenance they and your local NAPA affiliate are pretty good bets. My local GM dealer gets a fair share of their parts for the service bays from the NAPA for stuff GM makes it tough to get like the throttle body gaskets or replacement filter socks for the in-tank pumps.

I've never heard of this web shop. I usually buy car accessories at a reputed store to make sure my money is not wasted.
