    dunno how many of you guys use this site but its loss will be a great shame. I don't see how they can get around it though.

    Vehicle : Vectra

    Trim : SRi (VXR Styling)

    Engine : Z19DTH (Re-mapped)

    Year : 04

    Mileage : 110k

    What's there issue, because we cross reference then buy the parts from non vaux suppliers?

    I'll still walk into vaux, get the number then bid them good day if I can get it cheaper elsewhere, half of the "new" eBay parts are listed by stealer workers anyway...

    Be a great loss - very useful for getting part numbers and checking you have the correct part for your vehicle. Perhaps the Forum Admin team could put something together that members could add their names to then could be forwarded to opeloem

    all those drawings are copy written to them they did pay for them to be drawn up,they use there logos on there site and they use a site name related to them (them being GM)

    the site uses there stuff to help people service and repair there products thus taking money out of there hands the sad thing is if they cut there prices by half most people would take there cars to the dealers anyway

    I have to agree with GM on this, it is a commercial website so they should have applied for permission
    Equally, if they are selling GM parts directly, then they should already have permission
    Looks like an oversight by the website owners

    Ironically, this will just push such customers towards copied parts, rather than OE equipment

    However, rather odd that the order is from an intermediary rather than GM itself...
    I have run into similar issues in the past and each time the notice was received from the trademark owner
    This suggests they did receive such a notice but either ignored it or did not take the relevant required action

    This website has only been in existence since December 2011?
    Seems a rather short period, so no doubt it will return under a different Domain Name, with further legal action taking yet another 10 months!
