#1 Buying spares: before or after Brexit ?

Post by Durango2k » Tue Mar 19, 2019 7:00 pm

...anyone an idea?

I need a windshield, currently about 500 Euros from Pilkington directly.

Now, IF it happens - maybe it‘ll be 20% more expensive (taxes, duty upon EU import for car parts) ?

So - buy it now before 29.3. or not ?

I think we need a referendum to be able to answer that one :doh:

Yep, buy it now if you've got the funds. Regardless of Brexit it will only go up in price.

All that assumes that they've got stock/availability.

I need it in the next 4 weeks. I could as well have the bonnet painted, buy some 4 tyres, or buy the windshield.

Any sequence would do.

Maybe best is to buy the windshield, buy tyres, fit the new wheels so that it would be mooveable at the paint shop (it is not on flat dunlops made just before the battle of hastings), then bring it to the painter, and on the way back stop by at the glass fitter and thats it.
