Lately I seem to be ordering parts and getting something of a different brand than the site claimed.<p>Ordered a Siemens blower motor, got a 4-seasons.<br>Ordered an OE water outlet, got a Scan-Tech.<br>Ordered a Vernet thermostat, got a Wahler.<p>And so on. They could at least update their site if they're selling different things. I really was expecting the Siemens because its supposed to be reliable. 4-seasons...thats an unknown quantity.

Re: C'mon FCP Groton...what's the deal? (AndytheNissanBoy)

At least in regards to the t-stat, I would much rather have a Wahler instead of a Vernet. I have never had any issues with Wahler, but when I ordered a bunch of cooling parts for my parents 850(from FCP Groton), I got a Vernet t-stat which proceded to get stuck shut, and caused my parents to be on the side of the road. I was not a happy camper, and have since stopped using FCP Groton-instead using <A HREF="http://alloemautoparts.com" TARGET="_blank">http://alloemautoparts.com</A>, which works with World Pac, and have never had anything but great success with them.

Well, I've been using them for a while now, and apart from these minor inconsistencies (and the 2 leaky junk Nissens radiators I got) I'm quite happy with both fcp groton and their regular WorldPac site, which is <A HREF="http://www.foreigncarpartsonline.com" TARGET="_blank">http://www.foreigncarpartsonline.com</A><p>rockauto.com and autohausaz.com are a couple of other good parts places.
