Mercedes parts Brisbane

Post by Simon Dove » Thu 19 Jul, 2018 11:45 am

Gday All,
I'm hoping some of the good Benz folk from Brissy can recommend a good parts supplier now the forum sponsor is no longer available.
I've been in contact with HSY and Imparts however they indicated they won't sell to the public. The contact from imparts recommended Sydney wide European auto, anyone use them?
I have enough consumables to get me by for the moment for the W123 and W126. I'm now in the slow process of my W109 rebuild and essentially everything needs a rebuild after being on blocks for 7 years. I have the shed and some time but no parts/kits!
Any info would be appreciated.
Thanks,
Simon

Skip the rip off Australia pricing, they have very reasonable shipping as well.

It's important to also know that Imparts, HSY and the like also parallel sell brands of questionable quality, as well as the 'better' quality stuff, and it's impossible to know what you're going to get, unless you deal with the right people. They also do not have very friendly business manners, so why would you deal with them when they have no respect?

Since the forum sponsor has opted out of the local market, I have noticed a lot more junk quality stuff finding it's way into the public eye - all you have to do is look at the FB groups and notice people flogging faeces.

Suggest you instead purchase direct from the US or Germany. Shipping always will be the killer. tax is not a problem, and the best bit is you're usually able to buy genuine MB boxed parts cheaper than the local price gougers are selling a substitute brand PRC made ersatz part at genuine parts prices.
