    New rear shocks fitted on the car today. The old Britpart ones (only a year old) were absolutely stuffed. Front ones need changing now methinks!

    I bought some new Britpart wheel nuts to replace dented ones and they’re not 27mm across anymore. Can’t fit my 27mm socket on them and a 28mm is too big.

    Britpart strikes again...

    So which Britpart shocks and wheel nuts did you buy, the more expensive genuine LR ones or the very cheap budget brand? Let me guess!

    Yup! Buy cheap buy twice is the old adage!
