My first experience was when i'd ordered a pair of front wheel bearings for an S14 project (i'd gone down the breakers route before but ended up with just as bad crap that i was trying to replace) i placed the order around the time of the tsunami and expected a delay. the bulls#*t that came from this young fella's mouth was unbelievable, all of the excuses we've heard before except for the obvious. Most of Japan is running on limited power and the factories are working short time.If i could've got my bearings elsewhere i would've, i'd have gladly given someone else my £650.
The second time was this week when i went to get touch up paint for my Zed, This time i was dealt with by another grumpy turd who from his expression when asked was that he had to walk to Africa to collet some ochre and natural dye and mix it to be ready when i returned to collect it a month later. I know they don't have the opportunity to reply here but jeez they really need to work on their manners and PR. A car is the second biggest purchase of your life and you don't want a groveller but you don't want some herbert who can't string more than a couple of grunts together. I ended up getting my paint mixed by McHalfords. Looks like i'll be travelling to Birmingham for my next service. Chances of buying a car their dble00 MURLEY -5.

Sunwin Derby are now run by Bristol Street Motors, and with that comes the Gateshead "bukitin" call centre on 08433 080751.
Over the backend of last week the Derby branch phonelines were severed by workmen, resulting in zero calls back.
I have been given no less than three prices from Bristol Street Motors for a P1:
- £149 for the Bristol Street Hi-Performance Car rate (subject to any additional manufacturer's requirements on top);
- £189.95 (less £52.80 if I supply my own oil) as of today 10th Dec 2012
