Buying Guide

This short guide is intended to help you choose the correct parts for your vehicle.

Choosing the correct parts will save you a lot of time and expense so please let us help you to select the correct parts first time, every time. Some of our parts are non-returnable; this makes it even more important that the correct parts are purchased first time round. For a list of non returnable parts please see our terms and conditions.

Before we start please note the following 3 points:

  1. All of our parts are for Right Hand Drive cars so when we say "driver's side" it means driver side of a right hand drive car and when we say "passenger's side" it means passenger side of a right hand drive car.
  2. Imported vehicles can be extremely difficult to select parts for. The vehicle information is not as readily available as European registered vehicles so we would stress that when ordering parts for an imported vehicle, please ensure the technical information supplied on our website matches the exact specifications of the item you require.
  3. Where we only list 1 part for a car, this does not always mean that this is the only part available for that car. Please refer to the part specification before purchasing.

Car Registration Lookup

The car registration lookup is a very useful tool to help you get at your parts quickly and easily, however it is limited to the accuracy of the data provided by the Vehicle Registrations Office.

As a result we cannot guarantee that any part found using this service will be 100% correct, you must always verify that the attributes of the ordered parts are indeed correct for your vehicle.

Please Do Not Guess

In cases where you are not sure of the part you require please do not guess and please do not purchase parts to try and resolve a problem through trial and error.

You might ask, is it worthwhile for me to measure the part I need? The answer is always yes, as it helps you to select the correct part first time. Please bear in mind that you will only ever have to carry out the check once, after that we will have your information stored for you.

Remember we are also at the end of the phone/email or through social media to help. Please contact us and we will help you out.

Contact details can be found here.

Car Listings

The majority of our car models are listed in the following format:

  • Volkswagen Golf MK4 1998-2003
  • Volkswagen Golf MK5 2004 Onwards
  • Volkswagen Golf MK6 2009 Onwards
  • Ford Focus 1998 Onwards.

Please note that if your car is 2004 this does not always mean that your car is the 2004 onwards model. It may just be the older model but was registered in 2004. In certain cases you might even see a 2005 car that is actually the earlier model of the car.

If you are unsure what model of car you have an easy way to find out is to double check using any car sales website. For example; if your car is registered in 2004 and you are unsure what model your car is, visit a car sales website and view one that is 2003, also view one that is 2005, that way you should be able to tell which version yours is.

If you realise upon checking that your car is the 2005 model, this allows you now to confidently select the part that’s related to the 2005 model. Again a simple check like this can save you both time and money.

Parts Specification / Dimensions

Most of our parts have measurements included in the description. Those measurements are listed to help you verify that those parts are correct for your car. Please take careful note of those measurements to ensure you order the correct part for your car.
