Default Tazo Parts still on business?

Hi members:

Somebody can tell me if Tazo Parts still doing business?. The website is operational but I can't get an answer of any of my emails to customer service.

Cheers

Joel Antonio

Do you mean the Polish company Tazu, who introduced the metal slave cylinder or the UK based Tazo? As I understand it, Tazu is/was latterly supplying Xpart with clutch cylinders. I believe Tazo is a one-man selling agent and has/had a wider range including a lot of the Chinese stuff as per Radioguy. I've not followed either myself but might be able to find something.

OK. That's the one-man operation that offered many of the Chinese 'Roewe' type parts and introduced a number of stainless steel and alloy connectors for the 75/ZT cooling system.
He used to have a lot listed on eBay, which have now largely disappeared. However, I suspect the operation has failed or is being wound down. I've spotted one of Tazo's anodised alloy pipes on eBay being sold by a new trader using the name 'bojoclearance' which may confirm my suspicions. The location for bojoclearance item is the same as was previously used by Tazo Parts.

eBay: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/MG-ZT-ROV...8AAOSwvKRcue8n

If there's anything you think he can supply you with, I'd suggest sending him a message via the eBay page. Also click the 'Other Items' link.

Hope this helps.

TC

I emailed Tazo (using the Gmail address on their website) on May 24th and never got a reply.

There's a phone number here - https://www.facebook.com/tazoparts

And another here (click business details) - https://www.ebay.co.uk/usr/bojoclear...p2047675.l2559

The person named there isn't the one who started Tazo on ebay, so it does look like there's been a change and Tazo's name has gone.

EDIT: He is/was a member here for a short time. Click: https://the75andztclub.co.uk/forum/member.php?u=40499

Default Tazo Parts

Although the website is still functional, if you try to buy anything the "checkout" has been disabled which would seem to be a fair indication that trading has ceased. I have an unfulfilled order placed, paid for and acknowledged at the beginning of April, but now no response to e-mail enquiries. I paid by credit card so will hopefully have some recourse there if the worst has happened.
