Not Happy Dealer prices

Just thought i would call my local dealer for a price on some spark plugs (T.Spark).F*@K me!!! 15.29 each + Vat X8= 148.26p
Popped on E-bay and got some from Partsworld for 52.99p Almost 100 difference No need for that.
If they are charging that sort of money for common parts it's no wonder so many dealerships are closing down.

Re: Dealer prices

That's why they're called 'stealers'

Re: Dealer prices

Mmmm, I remember that hit many years ago; the indy garage that looked after my TS managed to get their sticky mits on some NGK plugs for 70-80 quid(ish). The Alfa ones were just the NGK ones with different branded packaging.

Quite a shock when your previous motor was a humble Escort where sparkie plugs were 2p each!

Re: Dealer prices

If you get parts from partco/unipart, despite the box branding, the sparks are often NGK-R's (well the last set of sparks my dad bought for my mums car were)
