Worth checking out then. Thanks! :)

Rambo wrote:Stef - from experience, I have found the shipping and costs of packing/postage from the States to be both fast and very reasonably priced. You now pay all import taxes at source so no buggering about with forms and payment at this end

I suspect by now you probably also need a cambelt change (+water pump, tensioners, idlers, PAS belt, alt. belt etc...) RA is an excellent source for these parts and I recently got 3 sets, inc post, taxes, packing etc for about the same as 1 over here :shock:

I recently bought some carnauba wax from a geezer in Maine and had to pay £12 on arrival at the post office. More annoying was the Saturday morning queue to collect that stretched for more than 20 metres outside Walsall post office. :banghead:

Good news :D :D I found the rear Yellow Stuff brake pads. They are totally unused, cost me about £60 just before I changed the rear brake system to the PNM conversion.

They're yours. Let me know how to get them to you. Sent a PM too.
