    Angry Quick n00b Question: Is there...

    Hi,
    I've been looking all over the forums and couldn't find one to my liking...
    A OEM Subaru parts dealer.
    When I did a search, many threads popped up but most of them were not what I was looking for or were aftermarket parts vendors.
    Does anyone know a place like http://www.hondaautomotiveparts.com/ where they sell ALL if not most OEM parts for your car?

    To make a long story short, I was driving on the I-5 highway when I came across construction on the road with cones. Obviously, traffic slowed down. All was fine and dandy until a stupid Caddy SUV driver thinks he can weave through the cones, act cool and get off the next exit. Well, he speed from however down traffic he was, weaves through the cones (not a good driver from the looks of it) and hits one of the cones, sending it flying towards my car... yikes! Of course it hit... Well, anyways, I didn't think it would have done much damage b/c it was a cone after all and the worst it could have done was leave streaks on my bumper... WRONG! The freakin cone hit my front grill at exactly the right angle and took the whole thing down with the cone (Didn't notice until I got out of car).
    Well, anyways.... need to replace front grill. Maybe need some touch up paint as well for the paint chips here and there...

    Damn it... my new baby! NOOOO!

    Hmm... maybe replace my front grill w/ aftermarket one since I have to replace it anyways?

    thx.

    Worst case, if you really want the OEM grill, you can go to your dealer.

    I spilled oil in my trunk and it soaked through the carpet piece in the trunk, and into the wooden/particleboard thing that covers the spare. Luckily none got into the interior, but I would like to buy a replacement carpet and wooden piece. Anyone know where I can find this, new or used?

    Try the used parts links posted above first...then a subaru dealer next...one of them will have it.
