GLS has unusual, hard to get items for many specific brands at reasonable prices. I've bought several items from them and have been pleased. Cannot comment on negotiating prices, but heads up that buyer will need to confirm specific fitment and parts compatibility.

i have bought a few things from them in the past. all brand new stuff. word of warning they really don't know what fit's what year boat and so forth if it is not on the box.

also their return policy is a mess!!!

Keep in mind often the buyout dealers or dealer stock of OEM or NOS, sometimes they at GLS, don't know for sure the product or part. They can simply describe the part as best they can with info they have.

I called CS, as I needed a decal for my 2008, fairly knowledgeable but at the same time did not know specifics "for sure".

I thought the price was reasonable so I did not negotiate the price, but worth a shot.

x like 5 or 6 items for me.

I've never tried to work a price change with them. I also do more research on the item and part number to make sure I'm getting what I want. In all cases the description they had on an item was correct.
