Where does everyone get their parts online? i.e. absorbers, cam belt kits etc.

Indeed but postage is extortionate for small items as are some of the prices these days. Shop4Parts with the 10% code is good with more reasonable and at times free postage.

Shop4parts is Eurocarparts cheaper on line presence, Quality is not always the best, indeed Eurocarparts trade counters often offer a choice between Aftermarket and OEM quality parts.

Aftermarket being aimed at traders wanting to maximise profits. eurocarparts.co.uk on line have near-constant discount codes on their website if you register with your email address.

I think it's CarParts4Less that is essentially the same as EuroCarParts but cheaper, Shop4Parts tends to be more Fiat/Alfa focused?

There's also AutoDoc (or BuyCarParts or a myriad other similar online presences) which can sometimes be good once you can see past the constantly varying "original" prices and "today only" discount rolleyes

I always use Steve at AA for parts that he sells, might not be the cheapest but he has good items where places like ECP sell on price - I use them for some things but would far rather support Steve who is a real Coupe enthusiast and invests in stock which helps keep our cars on the road.

As above Steve is a good source for parts and knows his stuff.

I would not be in a hurry to recommend some Birth parts though - especially (rear) wheel bearings which have been failing regularly - I went through 4 in quick succession and ended up with SKF


Thanks again, Photobucket.
