If anyone has one of these spare (from a car they are breaking etc.) would be interested in buying it from you!

Have you tried the Dealers ?
For such an inexpensive part I’d give them a try.

Yep, they wanted £9.50!!!

Even the person at the dealership was embarrassed!

Don't get me wrong, I'm happy to spend the money where needed (I've spent £1000's in parts over the years) but at the same time that amount for a 1cm square piece of rubber is enough to make me look elsewhere first.

Interestingly enough I do find that some parts are excellent value for money from the dealer, and others are ridiculous.

OK lets try again, has anyone used Discount Car Hoods of New Milton in Hampshire any feedback please, he,s quoting £565 for a new hood fitted and all that, was wondering if anyone has any previous dealings, am reluctant to travel up to Croydon 250 mile round trip, it equates to similar money factoring in petrol, time, etc...surprisingly few companies out there doing replacement hoods it seems despite there being a lot of rag tops on the road...regards Jeremy,
