Kingsborne spark plug leads

Postby wayne » Wed 29.07.2020, 18:52

Car has recently been running a bit rough so was looking around for a new set of plug leads. I last changed them 10 years ago for a set of Kingsborne leads
Checked SJ's price book and noticed that the leads were £129 or £78 for the Magnacore leads :shock:

After checking the Kingsborne site nothing came up on a search for the Elan leads, so quick email to them and had a reply within 2 mins. They found my last order and I've ordered another
set for the same price as the ones I bought 10 years ago $36.75 (£28). Well impressed with their service and price.

I ordered from them when I changed the leads last service. Can’t recall what I paid but it was a lot cheaper then any of the decent alternatives, postage was reasonable, comms were outstanding, and the leads arrived within a week.

What’s not to like? :clap:
