Black fabric electrical tape

Does anyone know where I can get the black fabric tape that Alfa use for taping up wires under the bonnet? Some of mine is coming off and I want to replace it.

Cheers

Cheers Wez... Are any of them any good? I have got tape before from eBay and it has been crap. Didn't stick very well and quickly fell off.

I'd be more inclined to buy a recognised brand. In fact I may just do that!

I've used loads of this stuff.

19mm is the width you want. They generally come in two types - rough fabric and fluffy. It's generally the smooth stuff you want in the engine bay I think.

One other thing. I've discovered that 'Tesa' had become a generic name in the same way people use 'Hoover' for a vacuum cleaner. If you want genuine Tesa, be careful the word isn't being used that way.

Ordered some of that tape TOX1C linked

Thanks for all the help and advice. Does anyone know where I can get replacement clips for the cable for the break light on the spoiler?
