ECP discounts
« on: 22 June 2018, 12:17:46 »

I've just bought a carbon pollen filter and an air filter for 1/2 price (£12.49 in total, inc. delivery) using ECP's SUMMER70 discount code. Lots of other parts on discount, but not all on 50% off.

There are never discounts at ECP, that's always the online price.  Those parts will be the same price if they have 30% off or 90% off. They just piss around with the price to have these DFS style deals, never to be repeated. Until tomorrow.

Understood, but are the prices good anyway, or are there better places?

You were saying...

I know it's not the carbon one, but it's half what Ron paid. Various other genuine VX carbon ones are available on eBay for £12.95, but it's too late to ring anyone for a dealer price.  :P

Was I ripped off? I paid £6.75 for the carbon pollen filter and £5.76 for the air filter, delivered.

I used to get both, plus oil filter, six plugs and a drum of 10/40 for about £70

Certainly both of those from a dealer shouldn't be more than £15-25.

So no, you haven't been turned over as long as they deliver what you ordered... ;)

Ron got the carbon filter and air filter for £12.49 delivered.  You shown me a non carbon filter and no air filter......  :-X

Can you genuinely go into a genuine VX dealer for those genuine items and genuinely pay less than Ron did?  Of course not!  ;D

Show me where you can buy the genuine items, like for like, for less than Ron has paid and I'll eat my hat!  :y

My ECP filters were both by Crosland - are they a good make?

You won't notice any practical difference between a 'good' make and a bad one apart from the price.

No, its an OK price, cheaper than dealer by some margin.

I bought a Crosland pollen filter for one of my cars, but next time I'll spend a couple of quid more and get a better one.  It doesn't fit that well, and although it claims to be carbonised, its borderline if it is.

The Mann one I bought for the Omega was a much better filter (on ECP's second attempt - first one was clearly 2nd hand), fitted nicely, and properly carbonised.
