OEM or bearmach.

Britpart have a real crap reputation here for cheap tat. in saying that, they've just extended their warranty to 24months, so they must have faith, or have drastically pepped up their suppliers.
wierd that eventhough their stuff is naff, they supply the ministry of defence and also some genuine dealers (although so do Bearmach)

Personally for most stuff now i just pay the extra little bit and get OEM genuine stuff.

Just had a good experience with LRDirect.com - Ordered 11/30, Shipped 12/6, arrived 12/8. Not bad...

I have been satisfied with stuff from http://www.britishparts.co.uk http://www.mm-4x4.com/ and http://www.thexmod.com (for UK MOD surplus parts). I also like http://www.lrseries.com/ http://www.landroverspares.co.uk/ http://www.famousfour.co.uk/ http://www.lrdirect.com/

You have to shop around, there are often really big differences in prices and quality for the same item.

I've used paddocks, craddocks, and dingo croft and happy with all. Like they say, you should shop around and shipping can be a killer on heavy stuff.

I've purchased many parts (wheel arch eyebrows, fan belts, fuel cutoff solenoids, fuel caps, etc.) from M & M 4x4. I've found there prices to be very good, and they are reliable and helpful. I always speak to Becci. Their website has a US price conversion. Good Luck.

I've used a lot, but mainly go to **ddocks (meaning both of them). Even with the sometimes cut throat shipping, boy do they make most US providers look like Tiffany's!

BTW, thumbs up for Turner Engineering! They managed to send me a 300TDI complete head to FL for less than an arm and a leg!

I have used Britcar a number of times. Deliveries are real fast and shipping is reasonable. They have a great website for looking up parts too.

I use Duncan Mansfield @ Brit Car quite a bit. Quick even on special order stuff and shipping has been quite resonable. I'm cheap and tend to buy most everything from the UK. Another bonus point for Brit car is they take paypal-seems like I always have money sitting there so thats been very convenient for me.

Another thats not mentioned above is Mark Calzone's company Simmonites. http://simmonites.co.uk/

I like britcar as well. Super easy to deal with and using paypal seems to be cheaper than using a credit card with regards to exchange rates

Being a Brit in the US I frequently buy parts from UK. I find on many items you will save between 50-70% even with post and packing included, but beware none genuine parts REFERENCED as LR part numbers.

John Craddock, Dunsfold, Paddock, Famous Four, Bearmach are to name but a few vendors to choose.

If you can obtain a copy of LR Owner International or similar these guys all advertise regularly.

Cheers

Fraser

x2 on that. I placed an order with them on Monday and got it on Friday (would have been Thursday, but that was Thanksgiving).

And if there's any particular item you want that the vendor won't post stateside, then you're welcome to get it sent to my place here in UK and i'll forward it on.
