    On demand parts discount at a dealership? Yes.

    My favorite online OEM Subaru parts ClubWRX vendor has been totally unresponsive for over a month now.

    I needed a cabin air filter so the local dealership was my best option. As the part was being rung up I simply asked if they discount parts and I mentioned I bought my WRX there (I did 4+ years ago). The guy behind the counter did not know me. With that the price dropped from 39.95 to 31.96. If memory serves this was as good or better than the ClubWRX vendor price.

    I wonder how often this might work give it a try.

    When I saw the $39.95 I just spontaneously blurted "Do you discount parts?" out. Weird.

    Let me guess, after you blurted out "Do you discount parts" you realized that you should follow it up with something and the first thing that came to mind was "I bought my car here".

    Am I close?
