I have to agree with Laggy, most of the parts I've had to replace on my Lag I have come from GSF, also the nice chap at my local MOT centre uses them for most foreign parts,

Exactly,and you can buy components from these companies directly.They come in a different box,but they are one and the same.

If you order an aftermarket Valeo oil filter for a Peugeot,you get a genuine filter in a Valeo box.Partco are Unipart dealers,and in times gone by if you ordered any Rover parts from them they would be genuine parts with different part numbers.

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....

Hi if you start to use a motor factors to you will also build a rapport with them they will have different prices of discount and after time you will saving the pennys and every penny counts,what iam saying is if they know you and you buy a part and it cost you 5 + VAT the next man that come in and he does know them he will be charged at a different selling rate like 6 + VAT i hope this helps a little all the best Donald
