2.8 TGV parts supplier

As some of you know, I'm going through an engine rebuild for my 2.8 TGV. M&D is the official supplier of parts in UK, and they are asking for body parts and newborn children as of late.

After years of searching, I have finally located the holy grail. An official MWM genuine parts supplier in Brazil (where these engines are made)that speaks English, responds quickly via email, ships international promptly, sells parts at the same cost as 300 TDI parts and will invoice me via paypal. I'm in a daze right now.

Calpen Auto Pecas
Calpen | Lojas Online de Auto Peças para Carros

point of reference.
  • new 2.8 crankshaft: M&D $1800+shipping. Calpen: $900 shipped
  • connecting rod: M&D $192 ea!+shipping, Calpen: $92+ shipping

I'll keep this thread updated based on how this plays out, but it's looking good.

Johan also has a warehouse of genuine 2.8 parts in the Netherlands and is highly recommended as well.

To close the loop, the genuine parts from Brazil arrived in less than 10 calendar days as expected. Very impressed.

I have new injectors that could also work as a kill dart for beagles.

Glad you "stuff" arrived.
