has anyone bought parts from the usal alfa stores online? what store was the best to deal with and how was the quality of item..
as i can tell i never bought parts for these cars before.

the resason i'm asking is that i've decided to keep my alfa and have decided to spend some money on some bits and pieces..
i actually tried to sell it and took a deposit for it but at the end i couldnt let it go..
my heart was hurting so i just couldnt let go of this family member.

i'm from australia so once the parts are here i wont really be able to clam on faulty parts..
ohh yeah.. i'm after parts that look as original as possible.. whos best to deal with.

I've used all the UK specialists at one time or another. I've found them all excellent and willing to discuss problems without pushing you to buy something. The products they sell are probably made by the same manufacturer, except for home developed items. It depends what you want.
Personally I think you would not go wrong using any of them. It will most likely come down to price and delivery charges to Oz.
Are there no good dealers down under?

Just what Si said, they are all good, they only slight gripe I have is that EB don't list prices on the website you have to get in touch with Kevin to check a price. As I tend to want to compare prices first I tend not to ring them unless I can't get it at one of the others. But as I don't like to ring somebody and not actually buy the item I often end up using EB if the others seem pricy... does that make sense??.

Watch the quality of some of these repro parts though, particularly Brake master cylinders:rolleyes:

EB Spares are here http://www.ebspares.co.uk/

I've used most of the usual suspects in the last few months for Spider parts and they are all helpful and very knowledgeable. You will probably find small variations in price. The only quality issue I had was with some headlight grommets from Classic Alfa but they were very happy to change them.
