At £5.28 including delivery for a set of rear discs, it seems rude not to! They must have an excess of old stock they are trying to clear, but even so surely that wouldn't cover delivery. Unless there's a mistake in the pricing...

Sadly I wouldn't buy anything from that lot. It's a budget arm of Euro Car Parts but I was still incredibly annoyed when the temp sensor I ordered for the Mercedes turned out to be a hazard warning light switch for something else. That's not even close! Getting a refund was an absolute nightmare too. The 'live chat' function kept crashing, emails took days to be answered and when I phoned up, the call cut out! Not at all impressed, no matter how cheap they claim to be.

I do suspect they may be awful, but I'm going to keep buying stuff until they annoy me - they're too cheap not to! I ordered front and rear discs and they arrived next day - in two separate deliveries, so there is no way they're making money on the rear discs. I'm ordering some Synergie bits now, might grab some more rear discs just for the sake of it!

It's a shame they won't ship to anything but your billing address, as you could advertise them on eBay for a fiver each, send them direct to your 'customers' and double your money!

Lol, I was thinking exactly that! I have an account with UPS though, so I reckon it would still be possible to make money...

Well, if like DJO and me, you're not fussed by OE, i always get mine from Sutton Auto Factors.

Front Delphi's, Solids £15 delivered & Vented £22 delivered. Never had a problem with them in 10 years! http://www.buypartsby.co.uk/buy/CITROEN ... ake-discs/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Incidently, i had a random price like those rears from SAF on my old Daihatsu 4x4. Cheapest i could find ANYWHERE else was a scary £62 EACH, SAF had them for 6 quid each, didn't care if it was a misprint, they still turned up!
I have zero patience for your tedium.
