Good Motorfactors

Recommended Posts

If they give you the right part!

 

We always use them where we can because we get a trade discount, but you can always garantee one thing will be wrong.

 

Use them myself...convenient for me on a Suinday morning.

 

Only once had a part wrong through their error though...sometimes the books aren't always clear. Had 3 attempts at a dizzy cap & rotor for a car from Shaws and from Sheffield Imported before we could get the right one.

 

Both Shaws and SIMF were as helpful as they could be, consulting all their manufacturer's catalogues for options.

 

No problems with either...except like most, they don't do parts for my car "off the shelf" any more so I use a specialist on eBay for things other than components shared with other newer vehicles (plugs, leads, oil filters etc)

Another vote for Sheffield Imported always used them for all my spares and prices and service are excellent. I've moved out to Eckington now and use Mosborough Motor Spares, again very friendly although prices are huigher i've found but thats probabbly due to the size of the shop and them not shifting the quantities SI do.

 

Greens in Swallownest/Aughton also gets a thumbs up.

Ozzie Bennetts in Beighton 0114 269 2880.

I believe they are currently clearing some 80's style accessories (poss. on ebay, but I don't know the seller ID).

 

It may be in ebay shops as Ozzie Bennett Car Spares.

For German, Swedish or French try GSF they are very knowlegeable & keenly priced. Had parts for VW & Seat off them very good.

 

Or at a push Eurocarparts but i've been supplied with a few wrong parts there. However to give them credit, it was parts for a VW & they have a habit of changing specifications / parts all the time on the same models. Eg different calipers with different pads etc.

 

Sheffield Imported are very good.

 

Lesuireways are great for consumables. Have they got the best range of engine & gearbox / diff oils going or what?
