    Who's your Huckleberry? The official ZHPMafia BMW E46 ZHP vendor stud declaration thread

    Post up who you buy your BMW E46 ZHP wares from, and write up a short statement as to why, if you must (not required).

    Please only specify one vendor. This should be the vendor, if they shut their doors, would leave you lost and confused and heartbroken.

    One post per person.

    No chit chat

    I will tally the votes and declare who is the most liked vendor at

    Leaving your choice and a short writeup will automatically enter you into a small prize drawing.

    Please only specify one vendor.

    Entry deadline and declared vendor winner will occur on 8/1/17

    Good luck and have a great Friday!

    I primarily buy my parts from ECS Tuning. Their website is a breeze to use and so far I have not had any issues in shipping, packaging etc. Overall a very good experience.

    FCPeuro because of lifetime warranty on any part, even on wiper blades, air filter and brake pads. It's great!!

    FCPeuro. I had a great experience with the for the last two years. Despite the lifetime warranty being a major plus, I see other advantages. Returns are super easy and in my cases they have lowest prices. With other vendors, I got some diffective parts that needed to be exchanged after a few weeks of use . Also, I was getting a wrong shipments with other vendors, but never got problems with FCP.

    14,404 is my go to for checking prices and I often get it from them due to 2-day prime shipping (and I hope the mafia forum gets a kick-back from the order).

    FCP Euro

    FCP Euro has a fantastic selection of parts, both genuine and aftermarket, for a variety of major European makes. They stand behind every item they sell with their lifetime, no-questions-asked warranty, including wear items and items installed incorrectly. They price match anyone else. FCP also has a VIP program for people who purchase frequently from them, which includes the benefits of free UPS Ground shipping, 5-10% off parts, and if requested, a dedicated rep who will help you with all of your questions going forward.

    Let's not forget the added benefit that they are 15 minutes from my home, and I heard they re-opened the pickup center, so I can pick up my own parts again.

    being in canada, my options are limited.

    1. i check here first. if i can get a quality part with prime shipping, then heck yeah.

    2. based on toronto, and they have a large inventory; i can get lemfoerder from them. prices vary, and unless you're spending over $100 the shipping is crazy expensive.

    3. ECS: their website is easy to use, they generally have very detailed photos and shipping within the US is pretty reasonable. i buy here if i'm driving over the border to pick it up.

    4. FCP: their support is good. website is not nearly as easy/nice as ECS. pricing is OK. i can't vouch for the lifetime warranty stuff, because cross-border shipping is so horrendously expensive it sometimes just doesn't make sense to buy from them based on this. if i lived in the states, then maybe, yeah.

    i used to buy from eEuroparts, but their prices and shipping costs have gone up a ton.

    Lifetime warranty and price match. Also the parts are delivered in 2 days even with free shipping.
