A guy on this forum not long ago was able to get a clutch kit for his clio at our local renault dealer for the same price as the cheapest motor factor - whilst renault parts can be expensive when it comes to fitting they fit first time. Our renault dealer will try to give discount when you go to the spares counter in person - whilst their quotes on the phone are crazy at times. So why not get some quotes to find out. When going to the dealer take about 6 kids with you and plead the poor mouth - maybe they'll take pity on you. If you don't have 6 kids or can't wait that long I'm sure your mates or neighbours would be happy to lend you a few

Hi i would get all my parts from a motor factors unless its a dealer only part when it comes to clutches most motor factors will sell a budget or a dearer type and in my opinion much cheaper than renault and as good if not the same,there are dealers out there that would do you a deal rather than lose you to a motor factors i hope this helps Donald.

There is absolutely nothing wrong with aftermarket parts,as long as they are of a decent quality.

Renault don't make all of their own spares anyway,companies like Valeo,Bendix,Bosch,etc,etc make components for the cars when they are built new,and they all provide aftermarket parts......

Many will disagree with me,but companies like GSF or Eurocarparts do provide parts from slightly lesser known companies,and I have had problems with some of them before,and they don't always specify what make of part your going to get.As I said,this is just my experience.

I would always get a quote from a main dealer for a part,and then see how much you can save.

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

Renault buy in over 85% of their parts in the building of the cars alone.
