Thumbs down Summit racing vs Local acessory stores

This is nuts! I like to buy local where I can, but this is a joke.

For a set of seat covers and husky liners, Barrie store, $760!!

Woodbridge store 860!!

Summit racing, delivered to my door, exact same stuff as Woodbridge, under $500!!

To be fair to the Barrie store, their seat covers are a better brand & fit.

I feel the same way and like to buy local as well but there's no way we can compete with the U.S.; parts cost less there, shipping costs less etc. and as far as Summit goes if you've never been there it's a candy store their closest location is in Ohio about 3 1/2 hours from the Ontario/NY border

the reason that most items are more expensive locally is they are made out of country and for every hand they go through there is a mark up,best thing is to find canadian made products for better pricing,as for fleabay you really have to watch for hidden costs(ups bend-over fee,exchange rates paypal sucks for updating)m2c


a moments silence for the shelbyx,i hope her new owner enjoys as much.

try a local apolstry (sp) shop they can get material in and make them for probly 1/2 the cost of retail....


not sure where you got your tires from but tirerack is a ripoff for shipping it was way more per tire then buying local and there prices were so close to canuck bucks the exchange was over the price of retail for local



if you can get a friend over the border and close enough you can have stuff shipped there and take a drive and pick it up

2000 F150 5.4L Reg cab short box 2wd
?? always looking for a new ford project !

Just get a address at the UPS store and have your stuff sent there for a minimal charge and pick it up yourself if you are close enough to the border

I totally agree with everyone on this, you have to be out of your mind to buy local as apposed to out of the US.
For example I got a flat tire back in November on my stock HD set up and went to two different tire shops here in the GTA and both of them were wanting $600 and change for one 275/45/22 Scorpian tire! I almost fell over when I heard that so I went online and managed to find the tire in the states for $169usd.
