Default Online sources for auto parts (plugs, wires, etc.)

Is there any good online sources for buying these types of things that you could recommend?

Need to do plugs, wires, fuel filter, oil, oil filter, etc. on my Cadillac and just looking to possibly save a few bucks by buying online.

I just figured (since I don't need anything immediately), that if I could save a few bucks by ordering online, I would, as opposed to my local O'Reilly's/Advanced/etc.

I like RockAuto.com. they usually have good prices and a good selection, but sometimes shipping can suck.

another vote for RockAuto, have had nothing but good experiences with them. Their prices are more than fair and shipping has always been fairly prompt.

Rockauto's shipping structure is fucked up. You get different parts that they keep in different places and they rail you on the shipping.
