Default ECarParts (ecp2004) saved my marriage!

Actually, not really. I am just trying to fit in with the tune of how the membership provides feedback on parts suppliers supplying parts.

In fact, the wife is actually a bit like a Rover 75 - oozes class, is good looking but can be a little stubborn at times. Also, whenever I think of replacement with a younger model, she somehow manages to stay to be admired for a few more years. Although I suspect she sees herself as more like her XF-S than my 75.

As for car parts, I placed an online order for a pair of front brake backplates with ECarParts - an X-Part supplier and MG/Rover garage - during the early hours of yesterday at a very competitive price which included their standard delivery. The courier delivered the box with plates just before 11:00 this morning.

The contact at ECP is Nick Daltry - a fine helpful man that I have dealt with a number of times before. Sadly, no bags of sweets from him with every order.

They are BS Motors of Sandy, Bedfordshire. Not far from the Shuttleworth Collection.

Dealt with them a few times from overseas. Nick is a top guy.

Pft, only saved your marriage and no sweets? They need to up their game!

They're top guys to be fair, I've used them myself in the past.

Even as a Johnny Foreigner I can say that E-Carparts are great to deal with.
They stock odd parts like LHD headlamps for the MGF and have no issues shipping overseas.

Matt - if I'm honest, I am a little disappointed that you have not progressed to sending out bags of fudge with every order.


We need advances in car parts retail.

It wouldn't make it past the office door I imagine - the Maoams have a hard enough time avoiding me!
