Greetings, fellow 12 volt enthusiasts! I've searched the site but didn't find any particular thread that could answer my question, so I decided to ask here. Hope someone can steer me in the right direction.
I just bought a 93 Cadillac Seville and as with every car I buy, I like to have spare fuses and bulbs on me in case I blow something or get pulled over because a bulb is burned out. I've found over the years that cops are much more cool and lenient if you have a spare bulb or fuse and can fix a problem on the spot. Plus, you're more likely to be allowed to drive away without a ticket.
So I'm planning on purchasing a huge selection of bulbs and fuses. The fuses I will need are Bussman (I use NO other fuse brand) ATM 10, 15, 20, & 30 amp fuses plus APX 30, 40, 50 & 60 amp fuses. As for bulbs, I have tons of different numbers to get.
My question is: What is the cheapest place to buy automotive fuses and bulbs? Of course Walmart seems to be cheapest around town, but they don't sell them online. Can someone suggest a great site that is cheap on price and full on inventory?
Thanks. I appreciate anyone who can suggest a cheap website or local auto parts store where I can stock up on bulbs and fuses.

Why do you use "no other fuse brand"? I have been working with cars since the late 80's...professionally throughout 90's and as a hobbyist now. I have NEVER had a problem with any brand name fuse. If you can deal with not buying Bussman fuses, Partsexpress.com has littelfuse at fairly reasonable pricing.
Installer, IT support, and FFL. I need less hobbies.

Why a "huge selection"? Are you expecting loads of grief?             Really all you should need are stop/tails, 380/382 types.              And littelfuse is the originator and supplier of choice for most OEM auto equipment.
Then there was RRoyce insisting on Bulgin in the 60s.

Stay away from Harbor Freight for fuses, that is all the advice I have for you. They are nothing more then a labelled shunt.
