Lexus quality is too reliable and they weren't making enough on standard maintenance items lol. This is interesting though

There's another thread on the forum that has indicators that other Lexus dealers were putting pressure on corporate because of Sewell's discounted sales to preferred online groups like CL. Pressure, like snow, rolls down hill.

In that thread there's a response from the Sewell representative that coordinates the CL relationship (I think that's his role) that indicates that online sales will be available after 3/1, but the prices will be at standard retail.

Sad.

Well, there's full retail price, regular discount online price, and CL discount price. They're switching to full retail?

+1 on that. At times reputable Ebay sellers had certain items priced at Sewell's CL forum price or lower, but of course they don't have the full complement of OEM parts.

Another Lexus dealer online parts site whose pricing is about the same as Sewell's CL price is Lexus of South Atlanta. I found it to be pretty close. So it's just how far you are from Atlanta regarding the shipping charges.

+1 from myself as well on this.

Just ordered a bunch of parts ($300) as a farewell order. Thanks Sewell for your discounts, support and CL sponsorship.

What about Lexus of South Atlanta? lexusofsouthatlanta.com

Do they give us a discount? They seem similar to Sewells

I believe their normal online price is already similar to Sewell's CL forum price. I don't recall it being any special discounted price based on CL forum membership

So all is not lost. UNLESS they clamp down on them too. However, I'm willing to bet that if you call directly to Sewells and order parts, that they'll still gove you a discount. It just won;t be through a specialized website or advertised

We know everyone is looking for a new option for Lexus parts and there are many options out there. Many factors come into when you are looking for a new supplier, price, shipping, location, quality and selection. We are Lpartsworld.com and MyLparts.com. We are a Club Lexus Authorized vendor. We are also a Lexus dealer selling only genuine Lexus parts. We are located in California. We have great online prices and offer a CL discount on top of those prices.Just use code CL5 for 10% off. We offer free shipping on orders over $150. We have discounted shipping on orders under $150. 99% of our orders ship same day or next business day. What don't we do? We don'd do any large body pieces, batteries or any fluids. Other than that we usually can handle any order. We don't have the same schematics as Sewell, but we are working on that. We understand that all this Sewell business is going to get spread around the country, but we do want to make sure you understand that we are here for you if needed. Give us a look over, give us a call! Hope to do business with some of you in the future! Thanks!
