I have ordered a few things from them, they are a great site and prompt to answer any questions that you might have! They typically have frequent sales on their site, so if you don't need parts right this instant, hold out a couple weeks and they will likely post a sale.

+1 on GermanParts, they've got my stamp of approval! When I first stumbled across them I thought it was fishy because it just seemed too good to be true! Turns out they are just a little hidden gem!

They are very legit and have a fairly new store in the Finch and Weston rd area. I first bought parts from them 10y ago at their old location, so they've been around a while. They just had a customer appreciation event at the end of august; I believe they posted some pics of the event somewhere if you're interested

they just had a summer sale ... August. I guess the next one would be December.

They have been at that location for like 4 - 5 yrs already. Prices are decent, in most cases.

Yeah, thinking of getting their brembo brakes for my coupe, price is a lot better than OEM

They're definitely legit, needed to do my water pump + thermostat last year and they gave me a nice discount on the kit. Pump + thermostat + screws + coolant. Can't recommend Vito enough.

I've ordered from them twice both with no problems. Get on their Newsletter mailing list; like another member mentioned they have sales every month if you don't neee your brakes right away I'd wait. The more you spend the more you save kind of thing

If your a BMWTRUENORTH member, you automatically get 10% off your order. IMHO...10% is not much, but its certainly better then nothing. Germanparts is VERY well established company, and have an extrememly good reputation, you wont have ANY problems ordering anything from them. I am blessed that I live only a 10min drive a way, so I just drop into there store when I need to purchase parts. You can also call ahead, place your order, and pick it up later. The customer service is also top tier. You cant go wrong..

Cheers

Wow, germanparts.ca needs to work on their SEO. I would have never found them were it not for this forum. Looks like they have decent selection and prices.

Used German parts many times. I have picked up brakes, cooling package for my old e46, water pump kit for my e90, maf and other misc items. Never had any issues, prices aren't necessarily cheap but better than dealer. Also the guys at the desk are friendly and may throw in a bonus here and there. The seem to to be one of the better options on the GTA to buy your own parts that are OEM or meet OEM spec

I've used germanparts to buy parts for both e46(former) and e92(current) way cheaper than the dealer. Their location is right off the highway and their customer service is top notch. I haven't had to visit them in almost two years though, my e92 has been extremely reliable.

They have been very fair with me. I have ordered quite a few parts for my 997 and my X5. Tim has been a very kind resource to my questions.
BMW makes cars, not parts. Brembo, Zimmerman etc are the OEM manufacturers. Why pay $6oo at the dealer for a brake rotor, when they are $125-ish from GP?
$12oo for my parts and indy install, or $26oo at the dealer. Your choice.
Suncoast is the american equivalent from my other forums. Price there too, exchange and shipping? Your better off at GP.

Unless your 80 years old not replacing your own rotors and pads is a crime.
