Toyota OEM Accessories?

where do toyota owners here go for oem accessories and parts? i know never to buy local because it's a ripoff compared to the US even at current exchange rates. this also includes jdm and other overseas places, like australia?

back in the day when i had a lexus i used to get stuff from sewell in texas but i just discovered they no longer do online business

Dealership, local indy shop, craigslist (used). There's not a lot of savings on big part with shipping.

I've actually found that some accessories cost more and some are cheaper at the dealership. It really depends on the item.

I check Lithiatoyotaparts, dealership, Amayama, and believe it or not, Amazon then just pick the cheapest. My shopping list usually comes from 3 different places.
