    Default Best place to buy genuine parts?

    Friend of mine just bought a LHD F355 from aboard it is due over here in the next two weeks. The first thing he wants to do, is give it major service belts+annual and anything else that needs renewing. He is planning to do the work himself, he was a mechanic for twenty years and now is semi-retired. He is wants to use genuine parts and he as phoned a few dealers and got some price for the parts. Is there any where else he may try e.g. websites, parts places that may be cheaper? I know there are few about who sell after market parts but he wants to use genuine parts on his car. Hope someone can help him out on here?

    By the way I would get him to use this forum himself but he doesn't like computers!! In fact when he had to use them for work he hated it and usually got someone else to do it for him. But I'll get few pics of his car on here when he gets it.

    He could try Ricambi http://www.ricambiamerica.com/ in the USA or he can ring and speak to Daniel. The number is on their website.

    Even after paying shipping,import duty and VAT, some things are a LOT cheaper, and their service is excellent! I bought some Porterfield brake pads from them amd they arrived very quickly. BTW Porterfield aren't OEM, but they don't squeak and cost half the price!

    Isn't this exactly what some of the sponsors here such as Eurospares & Scuderia do ?
