“Simply The Best”

Written on: 09/12/2014 by philphoenix (1 review written)

having tried several other sites I was on the verge of giving up in my attempt to find an alternator for my car. Being 15 years old I knew it would be difficult, but thought I'd give it one more try - am I glad I did! Finding 1st Choice Spares site I put in my request, and thinking I'd get another "Sorry", in less than a minute my phone went, and they said we have one in stock. Asking the price was another shock, having previously been quoted £60 - £95 I couldn't believe my luck. Paying… Read Full Review

I have never been so angry in my life I used this website to get an engine for my bmw.

“Not trusted suppliers - be careful.”

Written on: 11/11/2014 by Angelina.g (1 review written)

I thought I would save some money by buying parts here instead of getting them elswhere. I bought a head lamp and a tail lamp for my car. I called the supplier beforehand to ask if the lamps are in good condition and explained why I needed to replace them. I received the parcel very quickly but after opening it I was very upset. The tail lamp was alright - cannot complain about it but the head lamp was even worse then the one I want to replace.. I wanted to replace mine as it was fogged and it… Read Full Review

“Deliberately sent wrong item, still fighting for refund”

Written on: 28/10/2014 by Aryanna65 (1 review written)

I asked for a black wing mirror, was told they had 1 in good but used condition. Took ages to arrive and I had to chase them It looked black in the wrapper but it was actually bright red and had been covered with some sort of dusty black paint stuff that came off when you touched it. Was promised a complete refund on return. Returned it and fighting to get a full refund. The excuse was they didn't get the proof needed which was a lie as I packed, sealed it and posted it recorded delivery… Read Full Review
