Buying parts up north

Post by RobBMW on Wed Apr 04, 2012 7:15 pm

I found a guy down south offering a Supersprint exhaust, at less than half the price of a new one I thought 'bargin', so dropped him a PM stright away.
He said it's still for grabs but he wont post it!?!
I asked if I could arrange my own courier but he wasn't having that either! Rolling Eyes

So now I have to decide whether to take the 8 hour drive to pick it up, or miss out! Evil or Very Mad

I sell anything up here and I always have to end up posting it, otherwise I never get rid!
Just hacks me off!

Southerners are dicks Rob. Anyone north of the Midlands should know that Razz

You must really have to want it to drive 8 hours!

I have a beaten up 328i Ansa Sport going cheap; £60. Email you pics if you like?

Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire
I think the fear of missing out on cash has got him contemplating the courier idea! I've even offered to arrange it and give hima bit more cash for wrapping etc...I'll keep you posted! Might come in handy if any of them are from down that way though phil?

GOt lucky on this one, a work colleague happened to let slip this afternoon that he was visiting family down in Nothampton and would only be like 20mins away from the exhaust! He owes me some favours and so he'd pick it up for me! Very Happy Winner!

From Blackpool to Huntingdon should only take 4.5-5 hours, with good traffic.
I used to drive from Ipswich to Blackpool every other weekend. Started out at 2pm and got into Blackpool just after 7pm

I guess by living up here the greatness of the north must've rubbed off on you.

There's no other explanation Laughing
