Anyone used this site for parts? Or know anything about it? When I google for parts I often come across it.

http://www.scuderiacarparts.com/

I hate that there are no prices and their pricing policy isn't confidence inspriring:

Our extensive experience and knowledge working with retail and trade customers across the world means we understand the need to be flexible. By providing such a wide-ranging offering to our customers, we look to be competitive across everything that is ordered, and offer pricing in keeping with the order placed.
Anyway, I requested a price for some Vantage pads, but no-one has come back to me...

Hi,
Good online shop for Ashton Martin parts. About 25pct cheaper than original parts. Basically, you save on dealer margin.
Ask for Jake
Cheers

Bob.....Get onto Eurocarparts website...

Put in reg No

Rear Pads are Part No 101870028.........£167.94

Put them in your basket........then go to checkout and type. .test31. Into the promo code box

And the price changes as if by magic to £115.88.....smile

That includes free delivery to your door, or you can reserve and collect at a local depot if they have them in stock.....you can check their stock on line too....

Also, I think I saw a youtube ad saying you could use "Get25" as the promo code to get 25% off brake pads (or perhaps anything).

Looks like Scuderia Systems are branching out.

These guys are the importers for Tubi. Always knowledgable and good value on the exhaust front. Would be worth a try on parts if they're as good on those as exhausts.

Usually better off trying to call them IME if you need a response quickly IME.

Thanks, but I don't need any pads. I am just using them to see what Scuderia's prices are like.

The interesting thing about Scuderia is that they would seem to offer /all\ AM parts, not just service parts.

I'd just call and ask for Manu - he's normally very helpful. Bought a tubi off him a while back but they now import Capristo, who do one of the very few valved Aston back boxes (working with the existing rev range opening points), though at over 3k for a back box it's not cheap so seems hard to justify when I suspect main real world advantage over standard system, like most back boxes, is sound and perhaps a little weight gain, rather than meaningful power gains

I know what you mean, Lunablack. I am not particularly a fan of jumping through hoops or having to call people to buy things. Buying stuff on line should be zero effort affair that I can in my sleep or while working (sometimes both simultaneously) but if I have to pick up a phone or write emails to people, then I quickly lose interest.

Anyway, they did come back to me with a price. Does anyone know what the dealer charges for front pads on a Vantage? Roughly?

I think very roughly 230+VAT.

If comparing you need to make sure the ones you are being quoted for have wear indicators as they are expensive.

The wear sensors are a separate part that clips to the side of the pad..... Available for around £20 per side if required..

Are there not grooves or cutouts in the pads to take the sensors?

Don't wear sensors work by coming into contact with the disk in some way?

Yes there's a small indent for the sensor to clip into...... And they work by coming into contact, and wearing through a little piece of plastic, that then leaves a wire exposed which touches the metal disc, completing the circuit, and switching the light on the dash on....

As Far as I'm aware They only need replacing, if they've come into contact and switched the light...

When bridgemill did mine, they re-used the old sensors, and the chap there was kind enough to show me how to re attach them to the pad.... Pretty easy when you kow how....

Fairly sure The pads are the same, with or without sensors, as the sensor is clipped on afterwards, and is a completely seperate part..
It's just a length of cable with a plug on one end, and the sensor on the other...
