Like others, my litmus test is contact info that appears legit. It's on the website but very difficult to find. You have to click the OEM Parts Catalog link at the top of the home page. This page (which may be a legacy page) does have an About Us sidebar with the following info:
Subaru Online Parts
980 So Broadway
Phone: (877) 288-5479
It's funny that the vendor replied to funkymonkey1002 with a touch of attitude and didn't just provide the info outright--rather he provided an email address and a link to the page supposedly providing the telephone number (which, ironically, provided the address as well). Is this related to Subaru licensing?
[Incidentally, I'm ordering from them right now]
