Yeah, they are the same shape, but the Genuine ones don't squeak.

So it must be material differences obviously....though it could also have to do with the rotors as well.

That said, I went non-genuine once with pads/rotors on the LR3 and the brake squeal was definitely annoying.

I have ordered from them a couple times, but never asked for genuine parts. The Britparts came as advertised, quickly and reasonably.

So have you ordered genuine parts from them, and had them come out of box/bag/without label?
Didn't you post a thread on the forum a while back specifying it had to be Genuine?

Actually I was trying to be helpful and I will make sure in the future I avoid trying to help in your threads.

If I were a "know it all" I would be posting in every thread. The reality is I only post in a few threads when I think I can be of help.

Have you ever heard the adage 'it's not what you say but how you say it'

It is the internet. People imagine tone into a conversation. It is in their imaginations.

This is a technical forum. It is not a feel good, pat you on the head, love life forum. It is just to provide technical advice. If you see anything beyond that in my posts, I can't help.

My first post was to clarify if genuine parts are actually available as this is how it was portrayed at that time in the thread. I asked for the part numbers so that I could check Land Rover's part and price list. The part numbers are not in Land Rover's current price list.

LRSeries is a simple reseller. They are not a NOS storage pile. I would find it pretty amazing if anyone had a stash of NOS exhaust systems for a 6 cylinder and, if they did, it won't be for sale. If the mystery guy in question is really going to hold the restoration waiting for new, genuine exhaust, then he may be holding it forever.

Like I said earlier, the best course of action is to ask for a refund of the genuine to aftermarket price difference. He can then sell off the exhaust locally. People always need exhaust.

In that spirit, you sound like a prick most of the time; technically.

My advice to anyone. The internet is like golf. If you get upset doing it, then walk away. Nothing in life is worth getting upset about.

No one is upset, I'm just informing you that your prose makes you sound abrupt and off-putting and your defending it by citing my 'powers of imagination'

You'd be better off just accepting my earlier observation than defending a straw man point. Even if the source intends to inform, tone can muddle the message.

I wish more people felt that way. People get so worked up over the most insignificant things!


That being said, you do often sound like a dick. I doesn't bother me, just pointing it out

I'm not trying to argue with you John, I feel like I've been pretty clear so far.


Then gentleman that came to me today only wants genuine parts. He would rather have lightly used than new aftermarket(with the exception of real wear items)

He found a website in the UK that stated they had in stock, a sizable amount of NOS NLA Genuine Land Rover parts. He did not need to purchase multiple sets of items, but he did because he wanted to have the parts in the future.

When they arrived, the majority were not genuine. Some even had other manufacturer stickers or came in other boxes/bags.

He contacted them with regards to the fact that they were not genuine parts. A claim which they not only did not look into, but flat out denied.

Perhaps it was a mistake and they somehow didn't know that a box that has Mintex written all over it and no Land Rover label on it isn't genuine, I don't know. The fact of the matter is, when it's all said an done; the guy has a bunch of parts he didn't order, and is out $2k(or $2k minus the amount they refund him).


So he came to me to see if anyone has had a similar experience, and what they did to fix it. He does not use forums.....I can't imagine why

I think the original confusion was you talking about genuine. NOS is a whole other ball game. I would not have thought of LRSeries as an NOS source and I suspect you will not find many people that would have tried buying NOS from them. Most NOS I've seen is off the net.

NOS = Genuine parts that haven't been available for a length of time. Any part that is in stock with them but isn't available through Rover is essentially NOS.
