This is a small announcement, but it's very big to us. After nearly four
years of doing business exclusively through email and over the phone, we
finally have a functional online store: http://www.LithiaToyotaParts.com
is open for business!
We tried to get our corporate masters to give us as much autonomy as
possible because we want the site to be used exclusively by the MR2
community. With that in mind, we stripped off most of the extra junk, so
it still looks a little plain. When we told our web people that this was
strictly for MR2 owners, they put together a header that we're sure they
think is brilliant, but we're not fond of it, and will be changing it
soon. So please, understand that we are dealing with what someone else
thinks is cool, not what we chose. That's not the point, anyway.
Cosmetics aside, the site is fully functional!
The catalog works just like most other online dealerships - you can
either browse by application or you can enter part numbers manually.
This also gives you the opportunity to do things like add to your order
or check your purchase history online. There are things we can do with
this site that we have only begun to explore. We have a lot of MR2 parts
on special already and we will be adding more in the future. We're also
adding notes where they are useful. For some examples, enter 81510-17090
or 90919-21581 in the "Search by Part Number" box. We don't promise to
be the cheapest - anybody can promise that - but we do want this to be
the best site from which to order MR2 parts.
One more thing: we have a discount code in place for the next few weeks.
When you are ready to place the order, type premier into the Promotion
Code box for an extra 10% off the entire order (TRD and specially priced
items are excluded).
Even if you aren't ready to order, the new site is the best way to get
pricing information without having to email or call us, because you can
do it any time you want rather than waiting for me to get back to you.
The site is up. Take a look and try it out.
And thanks for taking the time to read my rambling announcement!
