Thumbs up British Pacific

Thumbs up for good service.

Replaced a leaking master cylinder with one from BP about two months ago. The clutch pedal starting going to the floor about a week ago. Troubleshot to a bad master. Called them and explained what I found on Monday. A new (better quality) unit just showed up in the mail today. No shipping charges or upgrade fee's.

Took some of the sting out of taking everything apart again. Good company to deal with.

I'm not sure who it was, he sounded experienced in D90's. Regardless of whom, great company to deal with. Recommend them to any.

Can you expand upon this statement? What was the original? What was the replacement, and what is the difference quality wise?

He left BP to work for Canback. After they closed shop he became a janitor for some school district in Santa Clarita IIRC and now he's in like maintenance / superintendent there. (No joke)

X2 (or whatever we're up to) on the thumbs up for BP. I use them for most service parts on my D1s and now for the D90 too. Good prices, quick shipping and good aftercare service if you run into any issues.

BP is good. I miss the daily special (good thing it is gone though because it was like crack to a rover parts addict like me).

From what I can see, aftermarket vs. genuine. Difference is one self destructs after 400miles.

Does either have 'TRW' stamped on it, and if so, which one?
