    Default Which spares shop?

    Who do you guys use? I've had my Disco 1 for 3 weeks and am hugely frustrated with the spares shops. Some of them charge more than agents. Out of 5 emails sent, 1 replied. One I called was going to be calling me back on Thursday....last week. Is business that good in Landy Land? The agents seem to be the most service oriented, not good news if you just bought a 1996 Disco 1...

    Both these are a pleasure to deal with.

    So where have you been shopping if the independent dealers are more expensive than the agents ? Are you comparing generic parts to genuine parts pricing or genuine versus genuine

    I make use of LR services, Gateway & Pon Steyn. Shopping between those 3 (not playing the one off against the other), I usually get a very good price.

    Just my 2c's worth of experience: Be very afraid of any part that comes in a blue box...

    I wouldn't like to mention names. It was a part in the R380 box. So could only be from agents, or used. Blue box...I'll have to keep that in mind...
