Sourcing Parts and Reliability


Recommended Posts

i'm going to have a look at some imports on Saturday.  I've seen on a couple of pages that a few have broken down, how reliable are they.  Is it easy for a local garage to source parts.


I'm not a mechanic and want something very reliable and not having to do anything apart from top up the oil and water and get it serviced by someone professional.  


I think I am getting put off as I have been on a facebook page and it is full of owners broken down and getting stuck.  I'll be travelling on my own so this is putting me off. 


Any lovely advice.  They do look fabulous

Great cars and all engines are really good.


Part supply is fairly simple, especially if you are using a garage who knows a little about them. Owners clubs can help too, I guess thats why you're here!


Only thing that can be a little tricky is getting bigger body parts but these aren't things you would change day to day, you can hope that if you do need something like a wing, there is someone breaking one who can help.
