    Ok that's understandable and I agree, it definitely adds value (as does their customer service and quality packaging)...I do feel their prices have increased a bit as of late. Specifically I was checking on a Cold climate dipstick guide (I plan on doing the GAS CCV), and it was $20 more expensive at FCP vs. ECS ($97 vs $78).

    Interesting. Well, that's a tradeoff that's worth having, IMO.
    Thanks for the info.

    FCP Euro definitely discontinued their price match policy. I called earlier in the month to have them price mach an OEM driveshaft CV joint to ECS and discovered this. I was a little pissed off because ECS has the exact same part for $30 less. I ended up getting it from FCP anyway because I needed it as soon as possible and I can get anything from them in two days. In my opinion, on this particular part the the lifetime guarantee isn't much of a value, my original one lasted over 100,000 miles.

    You're assuming the replacement will last as long as the original part!

    I ordered the wrong fog light (clear vs. fluted lens) and consequently re-ordered the correct foglight from FCP Euro. Once again, shipping emanated from SoCal, and arrived in NorCal in two days (this time via Fedex)....

    Ordered a windshield cowl from FCP...shipped from Illinois and arrived in CA in four business days, free shipping. So perhaps FCP is developing a network of distribution points/warehouses to minimize shipping times and costs.

    Drop-shipping from local suppliers/warehouses is a common practice.

    Hey guys, I'm a VIP member and just realized, today when I made an order, that the VIP benefits changed significantly too. Now requires $149 order to get 5% off and they got rid of the free ground shipping. The pricematch going away is a huge blow to me, because I loved being able to leverage the above discounts, along with price matching.

    Needless to say, FCP still provides a good warranty. But, I have never been impressed with their lack of velocity to ship my orders. I'll submit an order (like last night) and it won't go out for almost two full days (tomorrow afternoon). That's pretty disappointing. :-\

    I'll be having to spread my orders out to multiple places again to ensure I get the best value for my dollars, unfortunately. Because, in some cases, getting a lifetime warranty isn't as critical to me.

    I still recommend them, though!
