    Default Stealer rip off..... I know I should have learned.

    Yesterday some cretin relieved my veccie of its antenna. (last week it was 3 of the 4 'bronze' valve caps).

    Had a quick look at the new and genuine GM replacement costs on a certain auction site and realised that a new aerial would set me back about £7 including Post.

    Thought that wasn't bad but to save time I asked my mate to pop into my my nearest stealer and pick me one up (expecting to pay perhaps double).....

    WRONG £22.99..... ffs.

    There not always a rip off.
    ARB bushes from eurocarparts= £6.67 + Vat each
    Stealers= £2.42 each.

    As for valve caps, I used to keep a margarine tub full of plastic ones, didn't trust the grub screw "locking" ones. Now using the Richbrook spinning ones, without the key they just turn, don't unscrew. had no trouble since.
