Steel prices are high after 12 months of low volume manufacturing due to Covid.
We produce Aero grade steels and are seeing an increase in demand now. The amount of aeroplanes on the ground is fantastic. Factor in now how much servicing will have to be completed before they start flying again

I put your reg in and used Brembo as brand same as Fiesta and got a figure of around £130 from ECP, did it last night but forgot to come back and update. I apricate that the discs will be bigger on the Kia but not twice the size of the Fiestas. Reminds me when I went to local Motor factors 'EK Brakes' for a Oil drain pan and was cheaper for a larger capacity one

Just keep checking every few days, ecp vary the parts prices as well as the discounts. I picked up a set of brembo front discs and pads for the wife’s 500 a month ago; they were consistently around £65 delivered with differing codes for a few weeks, then one day they were £47.

I don't bother trying to save a few ££'s.

I go to a motor factor I've been using for coming up to 30 years.

They've looked after me superbly and have never let me down for all that time so they get pretty much all my business except for the odd specialist bits and bobs.

Andy.

Just looked up Autodoc as bought some wipers off them about a year ago for a work colleague, they were cheap enough but took a life time to arrive. Turned out to be for LHD cars and wasnt paying for the postage back to Germany. So if anyone owns a LHD Skoda Fabia 2nd generation or car with both 21" wipers you can have em wind deflectors are the wrong way around, didnt dare fit them as was her first car and I imagine.... possible wiper judder and thats something we all know a thing or two about.

Anyway, tried to look up the price difference from over a year ago to today, similar price, left the wipers in the basket and closed the tab. Had an email within a few hours offering a limited time 32% discount

Have Borg and Beck fitted now, that’s what seems to have warped
