Default Where do you buy your OE parts?

For example, when you need a new headlight housing or a new side view mirror cover; where do you go to buy the parts for replacement?

I'd rather not go to a shop and have them charge me a ludicrous amount for parts then more for labor that I can do myself.

I always tried to avoid buying from the dealerships because I feel like they might overcharge me on parts. Do you have a buddy behind the desk?

That is going to depend a lot on the kind of car you have, assuming you are looking for OEM original parts and not aftermarket. For instance, for my 300ZX I get them from www.courtesyparts.com, but that isn't going to do a Honda/Toyota/any other brand owner any good.
