Where to buy Corvette accessories and performance parts

Hi, I'm currently reviving my late Uncle's 1999 C5. Rock Auto has been good for some spares. I'm wondering if any members can recommend any companies in the US who happily post here to the UK who are more Corvette spares and performance/accessory specialists. It'd be good to find somewhere who like Rock Auto might pre-pay VAT for speedy delivery. Ecklers is a big one isn't it? I think I felt some of their prices looked steep though so just wondering if there's others to look at. Thanks

CCCUK members receive a discount from Ecklers. Also, speak to club member Eurovettes who regularly ship parts in from the US.

I sometimes use Zip Corvette, they'res also Corvette Central & Corvette America.
And Corvette Kingdom in the UK are excellent & a supporter of the club.

Rock Auto have always been great for me, they also ship very quickly. Just be careful when placing an order that all vat & customs charges are paid up front otherwise you'll get stung for the charges when they arrive.
It all depends what parts you're after though, you'll be surprised how much cheaper they can be from the US suppliers if you don't mind a little wait. A full set of quality drilled & slotted rotors with pads was way cheaper from the US, even after shipping charges.
All that said it's much more fun taking a holiday in the US & bringing back a loads of bits for the car, & if you join the club you can take advantage of Ecklers discount.

Thanks Corvetteville I’ll have a look at those. Five Red, yes so far I can’t really fault Rock Auto (apart from my Spectra Premium fuel pump/sender made in China that had the polarity reversed on the pump contacts- yes I had fitted it and filled with fuel when couldn’t understand how it was buzzing but not fuelling!)

Got some nice slotted drilled discs arrived today. Three days after ordering from Rock Auto
