Ok, guys, how many times have you wanted to buy a part, mod or accessory and looked to the forum for recommendations of where to get it from? You either have to search like mad in hopes of finding what you are looking for or start a new thread asking for suggestions and wait for replies, right? I know, I've done both of these many times, myself.

Well, it has been decided that it would be a good idea to have a stickie thread containing a list of best places to shop for parts, mods, etc. as a quick, easy reference to help forum members find the best deals on what they are looking for. Here's how it will work:

This thread is an info. gathering thread that members are invited to make suggestions of places they have bought from, had good experiences with, etc. We don't want to play favorites, so out of fairness, we'll include all suggestions when we compile the info. into the stickie post. When you suggest a place, make sure to note what kind of place it is (parts, mods, accessories, ect.); we will categorize the final list to make it easier for members to use it. Also, please provide a link and phone number if possible for each place you recommend and even a contact person if you can recommend one. After we get a decent number of suggestions and activity on this thread dies down, the list will be compiled into a new thread and made a stickie. The sickie will contain the list only and will be locked to member posts. At this point, if anyone would like to make additional recommendations to the list, they would need to PM one of the moderators and we will add it.

Again, this will only be a reference/starting point for people, not a favorites list; ultimately, it is up to the individual to shop around within the listings to decide which place is best for them to buy from. Members are certainly welcome share their experiences and voice their opinions of various vendors in their own threads or even here along with their suggestions, but we felt the locked stickie list would be the best way to be able to do this for the forum and remain neutral/PC.

Now, we all know there are already a lot of suggestions of various places for various things posted out there, but we (the moderators) aren't going to do all the legwork here; it's going to be a big enough task to compile and maintain the stickie list, so we need your help! Please follow the format below and make as many recommendations as you can! In this way, the list will be ultimately be populated by good vendors b/c we are using YOUR suggestions. Lets get this going! 8)


Suggestion format: (just copy/paste this template into your post and fill it in.)

Here's one! Stillen/Steve Millen Sportcars

It's me! 8) 8) :D

We are pretty much the premier producer of FX mods, as most of you know. Millen has more in store for this platform for sure! I think the immediate sellout of the FX (35/45) strut tower brace made it's mark with him.

What I can offer forum members:

ID yourself as a member when you contact me. I'll get the best price possible for you on the item of interest. Some items are available at a discount, while others are not. I'll suggest where to buy what your looking for if I can't provide it. (I do work on commission, so please make sure to contact me personally! :) )

I have been @ Stillen for almost 9 years, so you are in good expert hands. I have also been active with forums since there have been auto forums! Also, if you need an installer - my database is full of active experts for the Infiniti/Nissan platform in most any area.

Forum Members - contact me for a FREE Stillen catalog!
Just send me an e-mail with the following....(don't short me! All info is required on our new system to complete the order!) We do not sell our database to anyone BTW.

Please provide the following to [email protected] in CAPS please:

FIRST NAME - LAST NAME
STREET / APT#, ETC.
CITY STATE ZIP
YEAR MODEL - CURRENT MODS - PLANNED MODS
E-MAIL ADDRESS
PHONE NUMBER

Also........your ideas! I can't promise that we'll make everything that FX owners want, but I'll let Steve know what's on your mind for sure!

Contact me anytime with questions or just to say hi. (Please keep in mind that I can't be on the forum too often to answer posted questions directed to me!) Please sticky or crosspost this as desired!

Cheers,

-Adam

Most eBay prices for used items are higher than brand new merchandise on sale (with additional discounts that can be had through coupons and rebates). Plus many eBay sellers don't accept returns, rip you off with shipping charges, and may end up scamming you.

What I do is visit the websites of all nearby Infiniti Dealers and see if at least one of them has a parts coupon available. Then I go to the closest one and ask them to honor their competitor's coupon. That's how I got the all-season mats for $71 and the hood deflector for $77 with a 20% coupon, for example. Didn't have to pay expensive shipping costs either.

-Vendor's name: Motordyne Engineering
-Vendor's category: Modification parts; engine/intake
-Vendor's website link: http://www.motordyneengineering.com/
-Vendor's e-mail link: [email protected]
-Vendor's phone number: (661) 993-5111
-Recommended contact person: n/a
-Comments: Motordyne (aka MD) produces plenum spacers for the VQ35 engines, which allow the engine to breath easier. It is the most prominent plenum spacer used by Org members. There are two options; the 5/16" spacer, which provides more mid-range power, or the 1/2" spacer, which provides more upper-range power. Most have the 1/2" spacer. Other options include standard iso-thermal and copper iso-thermal kits. See their website for more information. Also, searching this forum for Motordyne will provide numerous threads.
