Hey guys I know about:
North Toronto Motors (overpriced) http://www.northtorontomotors.com
Miller's Auto in Fort Erie (they seem to have lots of Dubs) http://www.millersauto.com
The Source
Switch European
Caledon Motors
Any other good ones? I'd especially like to find a 'U-Pull it' type of yard so I can get what I want and have a good idea of what I'm getting.
Thanks!

It's not all VWs but there a several MK2s and a couple MK3s there every once in a while. It is a U PULL IT. You have to check quite often to get the parts when they come in. It's on Sewell's Road of Steeles Avenue (about 5-10 minutes east of Markham Road). I've found electrical wiring/pieces and interior parts there before.
On a few occasions, they didn't charge me for the parts because they didn't want to bother finding the part and ringing it up with a receipt.

Is there a place were the highway wrecks go to? ...so I can pull (or purchase for cheap) parts from a new MKIV?

no its not, at least its not a pull youir parts place. I went there once because they had a 1992 GTI 8V. The guy said that it was written off but the owner hadn't signed it over to them yet so I couldn't get anything off of it. I asked when it would be their's, and he was like well its been here for 5 months so I don't know.
I hate that place, you have to tell them what you want and if its not in their computer they don't let you go in and start pickin' parts.

The price at North Toronto Motors don't seem so bad. I've been searching for really rare parts and to my surprise I've found them. So I was ready to pay what they really worth. I may not have the biggest deal but I save more than 200$

EDIT: here's a couple more...
http://www.lecavalier.com in Quebec http://www.dominionauto.com in Stoney Creek Ontario. Not a lot of Dubs but they've got a wrecked VR6 Jetta that's just CRYING to be purchased and parted out!

Hey guys...I got some great stuff at the Source in Toronto. They had just about everything and Mike was a really cool guy. Racks of body panels, bumpers, doors, seats etc. They also had a couple of VR6's and 2.0 engines just SITTING there, complete! Thought I'd let you all know. Give Mike a call, he'll hook you up.
