It would be nice Huw, but FWIW WorldPac is free overnight shipping on orders over $75 and free same day delivery at 2-4 scheduled times daily if it's in stock at the local warehouse (90% of the time it is). Thats hard to beat or even match.

Of course, even those places are now "affiliated" with various larger operations out of necessity (Federated, NAPA, Auto Value, etc.).
