BitFenix has announced that it has opened its parts store. This store is an online webshop operated by BitFenix itself where you can buy spare parts for your BitFenix cases.
Some examples of spare parts include side panels with windows, as well as new feet for your case. This is a convenient way of obtaining parts for expansion and customization, or extras for use with modding. In addition, you can open tickets with the support team for anything you can't find, so this is an easy way to find BitFenix spare parts that might otherwise be difficult to obtain.
You can find the store at www.parts.bitfenix.com.
Pricing in the store obviously ranges from product to product, but overall it seems to be priced very reasonably. It is already open for business in the US, though it'll take a while before all of the part options have been listed. The store will also open in Europe sometime mid-July.

Other case manufacturers should take note.Reply
This is something that more case manufacturers should be doing. Warranty issues aside BitFenix cases are pretty danged nice.Reply
Corsair has tons of parts available! http://www.corsair.com/en-us/shop?c=case-parts-and-accessories Prices can be better at some vendor websites though.Reply
I once had a problem with a USB port on a Cooler Master case. They sent me a replacement Front I/O panel, no cost. Fast forward a few years and I have the same problem with an Azza case, and they want me to RMA the entire case.Reply
It's safe to say the situation varies by company. But if they all just had a store where you can just buy these parts for low costs, it'd save them time and money, and save us consumers time and frustration.

Exactly what I came here to say. Corsair is one of my favorite companies. Their products, solid. Warranty, Honored. Rebates, Quick. Customer Service, Awesome.
