Heads up on ATEB. Shop that had begun work on my truck called ATEB after being refered to them by Steve at Abbotsford Nissan, as he had sold ATEB some rotors. ATEB had them but would not sell them to the repair shop here and told him that their parts were only to be sold to their customers. Not sure why the hell they advertise on their web page that they sell parts. Business is now going to Rocky Mountain Imports. Got no time for BS games like this.

must be cause the want to support only their customers, not other repair shops that are considered competition. You could probably buy the parts for yourself, or have them install them(ateb). But they do not want to be in business to supply other auto shops parts that they could install.

Odd but makes sense. I would not consider that practice myself. I see it a lot in aviation unfortunately.
