Which is the best German online auto parts retailer?

I would like to know the experiences of the forum members regarding buying auto parts online in Germany and have them shipped to either Swiss Paket or LAS-BURG. I am particularly interested in parts for BMW, Audi, and Mercedes.

Which is in your experience the best German online retailer?

When I lived in the USA it was a breeze, much like buying at Amazon. Most of the american auto part retailers offered free shipping over a certain value, 30-day return policy, etc. I still haven't done such buying here.

Thanks for your attention!

I get my BMW stuff from autoteile meile or leebmann24. Whether they're the best or not I can't say. I've also had some parts from amazon US.

Thanks for the info! Buying from Amazon US comes with some considerable customs expenses, no?

I will check the other two you mentioned.

Cheers.

I've used autoteile meile as well.
Price was good but tax was added on and the in stock item took about 9 days to arrive.
All in still about 1/3 the cost of CH.

No, amazon figure out all the customs costs. Delivery however can be prohibitive.
