  • The saga continues

    Well the car was booked in the bodyshop on the 5th to be repaired, But on Tuesday got a phone call to tell me not to take it in until they contacted me again Why? I asked, And was told that they had ordered the parts from Vauxhall, they had the wing, door moulding and side skirt end cap. But due to a low demand for coupe doors the door is a *UK non stock item* and has to come from Ze Fartherland and is on a back order which will take 3-4 weeks

    I could fly to Germany with Ryanair and be back in les than 2 days with it

    that isnt far off the truth.normally a non-stock item is 7-10 days.we had to get one recently for a local bodyshop and they were quoting 3-4 weeks.we ended up getting one from motorbodies in luton as they had a few in stock.

    might be worth a call andy
    no longer working for vaux parts.wahoo!!

        Surpised there as the Convertible uses the same door as your Coupe
        Then again most Vauxhall dealers round here only stock parts for current models & most parts for older cars have to be a special order.
        Be worth it in the end when its all sorted Andy

              Surely this would do.
