Best site to buy parts for Canadians?

Ive been looking for an exhaust for my 2010 GTI (going stage 2).

Most sites and products are made for American shoppers, Ive had some bad experiences with import charges in the past.

Anyone recommend a site to buy parts for? Or if you have a specific exhaust you recommend im all ears,

thanks.

Isn't Unitronic Canadian? I'd check that out.

Tdot Performance is based out of Toronto, they have a pretty good inventory to choose from as well!

For Regular Parts I found this Canadian site, I haven't bought from them yet but their prices look pretty good,.. planning to buying a few parts soon... .

https://ca.autoshack.com/

EDIT: Seems to be a new vender, limited products but best prices on Front and Rear wheel bearing hands down.

Adding NAPA Canada, they have an extensive online parts catalog and you gotta love that they give 10% to CAA Members on in store purchases.

Does anyone know of a shop, retailer or importer that regularly does business with ECS Tuning in the GTA (preferably west end in Mississauga-Burlington)? I need to order a part from ECS, but the shipping cost to Canada is almost as much as the part itself. Then add the brokerage fee and duties and it gets ridiculous.

Thanks in advance for any leads.

This makes me sad, as I am in the middle of trying to immigrate to Canada from Texas (Hate it here ). Thinking about moving to New Brunswick or Nova Scotia, but am still open to other areas/provinces. I hate to think about not being able to take my modded GTI with me, but also am trying to find out about all of the fees to get it imported.

Nothing against our friends in the Maritimes, but why the east coast? Family ties, job prospect, or just none of my freakin' business? Curious as most people heading to Canada would choose Vancouver-Calgary-Toronto-Montreal as these are the economic engines of Canada with a strong job market (albeit high living/housing costs as well). If you do end up in NB or NS, prepare for some serious winter driving conditions. The east coast gets it hard every winter, one snowstorm after another. All the best wherever you go to in Canada.
