    DMCH new online store launch

    It was long overdue, but our new store is live - lots of new features including:

    • Updated, larger parts diagrams
    • Improved visual parts finder
    • Larger, full color product photos
    • Complete phone and web order history back to 2007
    • More intuitive part names
    • Live inventory on-hand tracking for more than 3.5 million parts
    • Updated wish list functionality
    • Product reviews
    • Improved gift card options


    If you have placed an order with us since 2016, we carried your account over to the new store, but you'll need to set a new password. If you're not sure of the email address associated with your account, get a hold of Crystal (crystalb@delorean.com) and she can help. If you've not placed an order since then, create a new online account and we can link it to your previous order history so you have it all in one place.

    As a general rule of thumb, if it is "out of stock" but DOES HAVE a price, it's a short term out of stock item. If it DOES NOT HAVE a price, it's a longer term out of stock item. Either way, you have the ability to be notified when it comes back in stock or even if the price drops at all.

    Our parts photographer got interrupted by COVID, but we're hoping to get him in to wrap up a lot of the larger stuff that he was unable to complete in a "work from home" environment.

    Comments, suggestions welcome...

    Looks great, James! A very worthwhile upgrade. I like being able to go back and view so many of my old order histories.

    Thanks to you and your team for the time and effort to make these upgrades. I've been playing around on the new site and really like the changes. The ability to click on each bubble number and have it pull up the corresponding part is particularly helpful. The wish list functionality is also well done... I may just have to throw a few last minute Christmas ideas in there and send it to a few people who have been asking.

    Another neat thing is you can click on the blue bubble in the list of parts at the bottom and it will jump back to the diagram and flash red to see where it is on the page.

    Thanks for the kind words - we still have some plans for more features, but "scope creep" and COVID forced us to put those off until we can get into Q1/Q2.

    Glad you like it - thank you.

    While all the orders - web and phone - were in our offline system, it always bugged me and it was an inconvenience to have not be able to access them online. A long-range dream is to get into the system we used prior to 2007 and find a away to add that data, too...but there's other low-hanging fruit to be picked before that can happen.

    I had to go back and try out that feature now that you mentioned it. That is also a nice feature for bouncing back and forth between the parts list and diagram. Also cool to hear about additional upgrades in the future.

    When I take my car out for a drive people commonly ask if it is hard to get parts or want to know if I can just go to the regular auto parts store. My answer typically includes some reference to delorean.com and people are surprised to hear how easy it is to access parts diagrams to find exactly what you need.

    For a low production, oddball car pushing 40 years old we've got it pretty good in terms of parts availability.

    James and team: These are excellent enhancements to the parts store website!! I like the improved parts diagram with functionality. Very nice work!

    As a project manager, I know scope creep is tough to rein in.

    Congratulations!

    My VIN:    I respect my vin enough not to whore it out among the masses.

    Nicely done!! My favorite section these days is the gifts and accessories department.
