Amazon is in the Auto Parts Business -- Who Knew!

I heard some interesting numbers yesterday, from an unnamed source, that Amazon now has over 2 million listings in their auto parts and accessories category. This surprised me because I wasn't even aware that Amazon had an auto parts and accessories category.

I did some test searches and was amazed at the selection available on Amazon. What amazed me even more was that eBay only has 1,154,800 listings in auto parts and accessories. This may not be a direct apples to apples comparison of the selection on both sites but it is close enough for a blog post.

How long do you think it will be before Amazon starts selling cars?

In other news related to auto parts, eBay just announced that they had launched eBay Motors 2.0, though I don't think they are actually calling it that.

Sorry for the unnamed source thing. (that was for you ML)

Just my 5 cents!
