Check out Volkswarenhaus.de. This is where I'll be buying my Type 3 stuff from now on. £13-14 for a handbrake cable instead of £45 over here. Crazy difference

I quite tactfully didn't say that ;)

You must learn tact, it will serve you well.

No they're not, they're reasonable if you don't want to have to ship tat from other countries, trawl shows for swapmeet gear and wait..and wait.. and wait for that elusive part..

It's called business, Paul and Co saw and opening and went for it.. when you've done the same, gambled to get there and keep a small breed of classic car enthusiasts with a decent supply of parts.. then you can "stupid" prices all you like.

Type 3 parts are more expensive as they are 'mostly' genuine parts or NOS. Beetle parts are plentiful and cheap because the repro market met the demand of sheer prodeuction figures of course.

Didnt someone on here have a thread the other day slagging off cheap repro stuff?

T3D supply a (relatively) small niche market. Id suggest theyre prices reflect demand well, moreso given there continued success.

It never ceases to amaze me when some folk properly slag this place (and its members) off on 'other' forums . . .

Then bitch like fuck when they can't get back on here ;)

Careful what you wish for . . . you REALLY can't have your cake and eat it
