Hood rip off
Here is an extract from an email recieved from a certain northern based hood company after I sent them an enquiry about the cost of getting the rear window section replaced on my spider, I'll let you decide what you think about it.
"supply only for rear section would be £230 including VAT fitting would add £200 as you have to remove most of the hood to fit the rear window. delivery is ex stock plus £10 carriage, thanks for your enquiry"
Needless to say I sent them an email straight back informing them of how to change the rear window section and how long it takes (about 20 mins I reckon as long as the screws aren't seized) which takes there labour rates up through the roof. Cheeky gits, I bet a lot of unknowing motorists get scammed by this sort of thing.
