hi

picked the car up and the gezza found a ball joint for 28.00ish, bit of a difference to the 100 odd quid volvo wanted

why dont they supply the parts ????

oh well, its sorted and the wallet isnt as black and blue as expected

later

I think that the dealers are hoping to get people unlike you and I. Quite a few people I know would have just forked out instantly for teh Vovlo part hence earning them lots of dosh, the couple of people who go elsewhere really doesn't matter to them (I think).

Regards

stu

to right, they could make all that extra cash just by selling the parts, rather than ripping us off !!

oh, and thanks to whoever mentioned eurocarparts, looks like they'll save me a few quid in the future.

later
