    Evening all,

    Thought a quick hello was in order- and of course a question too!

    No idea why I havn't jumped on forums before- they seem to be the best way to get answers any day of the week!

    I'm the proud owner of a E46 compact 318ti '51, interior/exterior in 'Individual' violet paintwork- yes, I know...it's purple!! Had the car a couple of years now, stacking up those motorway miles but absolutely loving it.

    So now the question- do you guys all avoid dealing with the dealers in any way possible? Just recieved a couple of killer quotes for front suspension link rods £200+!! and the gearbox to exhaust bracket £75+!!

    Can anyone recommend a better resource for parts?? If I can go local for the labour then happy days, but these are the first parts i've had to get for the car and don't feel confident about the local dealership/service guys at all!!

    Many thanks people, off to cruise the threads ...

    Hello there, by Hants, do you mean HAMPSHIRE? If you're anywhere near Aldershot, try Edge Performance. They are next door to Mr.Clutch. Give them a bell. 01252-331-888. Tell them Charley put you onto them. Steve or Jake. They can get you the parts if you need them to, or you can supply, and get them to fit.

    GSF (01252-333-891) is 5 mins down the road too, near Badshot Lea Garden Centre, where you'll be able to get the front rods.
