But, but, but, I just bought a right rear passenger window regulator from esaabparts.com. As a non-dealer, retail customer.

exactly - esaabparts sells the parts to the public but you can't buy parts from the orio website, that's all i was saying

But you originally said:
. . . https://www.orioautoparts.com/ is for dealers only, like esaabparts
I am at a loss as to how to interpret your prior statement in some other fashion than that orioparts is like esaabparts, in that they are both for dealers only. That is what "like" means in that context. Had the prior statement been "https://www.orioautoparts.com/ is for dealers only, UNlike esaabparts . . . " then I would agree.

This confused reader will state that he has dealt in words for over thirty years, including drafting legislation and authoring briefs before the Supreme Court. Clarity of meaning and precision of expression are required in these endeavors. The comma placement in the foregoing statement does not convey what you gentlemen believe it conveys.

See the two statements below, where we remove the word "only" to make the difference in meaning clearer:

. . . https://www.orioautoparts.com/ is for dealers, like esaabparts

. . . https://www.orioautoparts.com/ is for dealers like esaabparts

The first sentence asserts that Orio and essabparts are the same or similar and are websites via which dealers only may purchase parts.

The second sentence, with no comma, says that Orio is available to dealers and a specific example of such a dealer is essabparts.
