    Default Broken springs? This'll make you sick...

    Just had my front springs changed following a snapping incident and chap in garage tells me that he has never seen so many broken springs.

    Goes on to inform me that they'd just ordered in some springs for a customer's Aston Martin.

    Vauxhall's price for front springs kit = £167.00

    Aston's price for 2 front springs?

    I'll let you guess.

    Very close - £110 for the pair.

    Makes you wonder what Vauxhall springs are actually made of to make them so expensive.

    Why don't we start doing Aston Martin upgrades and modifications to our Veccies, as opposed to VX, Irmscher etc. LOL !!!

    I was a mile out then. But to be realistic. A spring is prety much a spring. They are made in the same way. Be it for an Aston Martin or a Ford KA. Difference you may argue is "standard" or "heavy duty". But at the end of the day. The manurfacturing is still the same. It is the price the dealer charges that anoys us all.
    I bought Two for the wifes Vectra off Ebay for about 40quid, fitted them myself. I mush have save myself a few quid by the sound of it.
