Where to buy parts for a 156?

Hey, I've recently bought a somewhat shabby looking Alfa Romeo 156 '98 and were wondering if someone here knew of a good website to purchase some exterior parts, like the rear bender, the grill and the skirt or whatever you'd call it. Would prefer original parts

Is buypartsbuy.co.uk a decent place to get parts from?

The reason I ask is I have always used ebspares and have been extremely happy with them but buypartsbuy are considerably cheaper. Are their parts good quality?

Example: Top Wishbone (aftermarket) 34 from ebspares but only 15.38 from buypartsbuy.

I can't help but be suspicious at the price difference of all their parts compared to all other websites I have come across.

EB spares is a happy middle ground and very good. Can't say about buypartsbuy although I have lower wishbones from EB on my 156 and EBAY on my 155. Both have performed faultlessly for many thousands of miles.

I get brake parts from buypartsby... the 156 and our Pug 206 ... no problem with them as they are branded makes like QH, Mintex, Ferodo. Whatever they have in stock at the time. Just double check the parts they are showing match you car .. 156 brake parts are a nightmare for wrong types ..

My front exhaust section came from them too and that's been fine.

Haven't tried suspension arms, but they should be good. buypartsby are the web site for Sutton Autos .. a motor factor in the midlands.
