My car recently developed a problem which resulted in the car getting too hot. It has been diagnosed as a thermostat which I brought today and will have fitted tomorrow.
Anyway, I rang German Swedish and Frence car parts. Ł48 inc vat. It would take 4 days to arrive as its a special.
Next I rang Euro Car Parts. Who had it in stock but wanted Ł51 inc vat.
THEN out of curiosity I rang AUDI WOLVERHAMPTON. Ł58 inc vat. WOW. One in stock so I grabbed it.
It has a 2 year guarentee and i'm assured of the quality. The non OEM items have NO GUARENTEE.
Am I wrong to be SHOCKED or is it really that close in price between the main dealers and parts specialists?
