    I did some research looking for parts that I will be getting for my car cheaper than the dealer is offering and decided to share them. All these prices don't include tax and shipping(some include free shipping).

    Splash Guard Set:
    Best price I found was Amazon for $55.77. Honda retail is $104. What I read in the comments these are OEM.

    Trunk Tray:
    Best price I found was Amazon for $85.44. Honda retail is $114. This tray is also OEM.

    Nose Mask:
    This nose mask not OEM, but I believe is better than the one Honda offers and is cheaper. However this is personal preference. Best price I found was $67.99. Honda retail is $158.

    They don't call them "Stealerships" for no reason.

    I agree with ya, but in the other hand they are just like everyone else in the world. the guy answering the phone has to be paid, I guy dealing with us on the service drive, parts counter and sale floor all have to be paid. I'm a firm believer that if dealership charged a more reasonable mark on parts/service they would be flooded with business. parts mark up on Honda stuff is probably 40-45% I know the body shop I work for they give us 32% off "list". same in service they charge $120hr and the tech probably gets paid 25-30hr, if they went for 75-85hr I'd think more people would be have general service/maintenance done.

    Their all crooked. I've worked at 3 dealers in my life as a mechanic. I could tell you some stories lol

    I have, and always will, take my vehicles to private shops (if I don't do it myself). The issue these days is that so much is controlled by computers and you need ridiculously expensive diagnostic tools to do basic things to cars now. Any nut and bolt job tho, find a trustworthy local mechanic and pay him.
