I'd Like To Recommend A Parts Supplier

I ordered a pair of front upper suspension arms from Shop4Parts on monday evening, after office hours, and they arrived at 10am wednesday morning.
Excellent price. Excellent service. Chuffed to bits.

Re: I'd Like To Recommend A Parts Supplier

Used them for most of the parts for my last service (oil 7-litres, oil filter and air filter). Thought delivery charge was a bit steep (7.95 plus vat), but it was still cheaper than dealers. Ordered Monday, delivered Wednesday. Got a cabin filter from a local motor factors though as it was a bit cheaper - I was going there anyway to pick up brake and carb cleaner.

Total cost: 74 against 92 from dealers (but they wanted over 25 for the cabin filter!)

Moral: Shop around. Only buying one or two bits? You might be better off at dealers when delivery and vat are added in, particularly "consumables". But buying several things at once, they are good. And quick as you said Roswell.

I used them the other weeks for a pollen filter and a can of oil. I'd repeat the complaint about the delivery charge, but the parts prices are pretty good and they delivered quick.
