The parts pricing in Canada for GM stuff is absolutely criminal. I seroiusly don't know how they are able to quote with a straight face.
I built out my '97 WS6 to 700 HP and I have a caddy CTS -V. I buy all my parts in the US and ship to Blaine and go pick up. I have the hassle of the border crossing and I declare ALL my parts.
My most recent situation was that GM in Richmond quoted me $2000 to replace rotors and pads . Although they did offer me a discount because I was p**sed that they had not replaced them under my service plan. I was LIVID. "Special price" of $1650 total.
I ordered the more expensive performance OEM slotted rotors and Hawk pads from a Dealer in the US and installed them myself. TOTAL cost was about $1000 CDN. As far as I was concerned that was $1000 I should never have had to pay. After ten years of going to that dealer with my 97 TA and '04 CTS they lost me forever.
Once you are through warranty NEVER buy parts in Canada. HOWEVER, be careful about the overnight couriers as they will often charge $30 - $70 "brokerage" fee and that is not going to be worth it on a small value part if you cannot pick up in the states. In that case, INSIST that the part be sent by US Postal service. Only a flat $5. service fee.
