Cheap car parts

Does anybody have any experience or views on after market parts? My gtv needs some new front wishbones, I have seen them at eb spares and other alfa sites for a reasonable price but I have also found them on ebay for 50.00 for a pair all in including delivery from a company called planet car parts.

Anybody got any experience good or bad?

You pays your money and takes your chance!

I would prefer to go to EB spares,

I wore a set of cheap brake disc out on my MG Metro in 9000 miles and pads in 3000 EBay specials.

I bought my new front wishbones from EB Spares and had them fitted a couple of months' ago. No problems. They are a reputable company for Alfa parts and I used to get the odd bit for my Spider S4 from them too. My GTV wishbones needed replacing at 36000 miles and I didn't want to fork out well over twice the money for the Alfa wishbones if they are going to need replacing every 3-5 years anyway

Well to bring a bit of balance to the thread I had a terrible experience with EB spares parts and will never touch them again. Maybe try AutoLusso or Eurocarparts?

I would certainly avoid 50quid ebay specials.
