Parts from a garage

Post by MULLEY » Wed Jan 03, 2007 12:24 am

Thought this might prove useful, about a month ago i purchased some front brake discs (original citroen parts) from a Citroen dealer down in Cornwall, i enquired as to whether they had any other parts. They came back & said that they didnt have the parts i wanted but they did have a fair stock of bx parts that they wanted to get rid of.

I mentioned i was in a car club & that the members may be interested if they had keen pricing, so they have supplied me with the following list without prices, so may be some bargains available, i got the front discs for £20 inc p&p which i thought was bit of a bargain.

It would prove useful if anyone who contacts them can advise how they got on to let others know whether its worth their while or not.

Happy shopping folks:

We have a lot of unidentified stock which we are working our way through since taking over the dealership 3 years ago.I will contact you with any BX items.The parts we have identified so far are:
several pairs of FT discs,FT brake pads,n/s headlamps,n/s indicator unit,n/s rear lens unit complete
More to follow,thank you for your enquiry.

Keep us informed of developments Ian, hopefully these chaps will let things go for bargain prices to stop cluttering up their more profitable spares.....

Have been in contact with these guys. Seem friendly and helpful and are more than willing to negotiate on the price.

I'm buying 2 brand new windscreens with the seals for £100.

Ordered the pair of front wings last Friday lunchtime and were delivered 2pm on Tuesday, very well wrapped.

Will have to see what else they find in their stores, would deal with again.
