Where to buy Subaru Legacy car parts

Subaru's Legacy has been available in the UK since 1990 and has been popular within its niche ever since. They are tough, hardy cars with solid reputations for reliability and build quality. Every car needs spares at some point, however, so where do you find good value Subaru Legacy car parts?

Mainstream service parts

If you want run of the mill servicing spares like oil and air filters, brake pads, discs and even gasket sets, then you can obviously buy from your main dealer.
This does incur a premium in terms of cost, however, so you'd be well advised to check out the prices that a local motor factor or spares shop charge. It's worth noting the price from your dealer first, though, as they do have special offers which sometimes make their deals better. It may also give you some bargaining room if the motor factor is close on price.

Second-hand choices

The used Subaru Legacy spares market has grown since the launch of websites like Ebay. If you need less common parts like gear-boxes, alternators and such like, the online auction site is a great destination. Prices are very competitive, but the downside is that you have to accept that the products you buy will have a shorter life-span than new ones. Online search agencies like 247spares.co.uk and 1stchoice.co.uk are sites that take the details of the parts you need and then, check the stock of hundreds of breakers yards around the country. Anyone who has the parts sends you an email detailing the prices and you choose your supplier from there. This can be a very good way to find those difficult spares, but be prepared to wait a while for responses. If you prefer not to fill in forms and give information to online agencies, then you can always telephone or visit the specialist breakers personally. Car-transplants.co.uk often has a number of these vehicles and also the Impreza with which it shares some parts. Dewsbury Auto Salvage are another good sources and well worth a call as their stock changes regularly.

Performance enhancing

Japanese tuning is big business. Oddly enough, if you want Subaru Legacy exhausts, wheels or performance parts, then you probably have a larger market place than for standard parts. Subaru4you offers standard and tuning parts and has a comprehensive website. Europerformance.co.uk is a more general tuning firm, but has a respectable range of Legacy options. Finally, pay a visit to Scoobytuner.com. This American site has a huge number of performance options and the US has been tuning these vehicles for nearly as long as the Japanese, so have a massive depth of knowledge on the subject.
