What this about?? SMART repairs while you shop? Havn't seen SMART repairers touting at supermarkets before and it'll be a big move up for the car-wash boys .
2nd hand parts are ok as another cost effective option but you've got to be lucky to find body parts that will still match in with your paintwork (even if the colour is the same there's still batch variations and paint ages to different degrees over the years) so you may still have to pay out for a paint job to achieve the perfect result. Even plain finish plastic greys & blacks differ with age.
Currently in Renoir White's garage:
Renault Trafic 1.7 Petrol Vauxhall Astra 1.4i & in bits Triumph Bonneville T140E & H-D XLH1200
