Expensive if you have a fancy car and want named brand oil
the trade club semi is still cheaper from TB's fave internet auction site @38 for 20L delivered  :P
 Reminds me of a story I was told
the landlady of a local pub had a new sporty merc
someone told her to top the oil up , she did
took loads of oil to do

she filled it till the filler cap was brimmed  ;D

I did actually buy some Full Fat Castrol Edge a few years back in Halfrauds, they had priced it up wrong and put it on a Special Offer Bin, something like 6 for 4 Liters of the stuff, think I picked up about 10 items of it, then had the usual Riff Raff at the Till as it wasnt showing up at that price, anyway cut a long story short the Manager did actually let me have for that price in the end, I still remember now being helped to walk out the Shop whilst they were quickly removing stocks from the Bin.  :D

I did an Oil Change with the stuff on my Irmscher Elite, quiet a bit later Serek bought the Car off me, first thing Serek did was to change the oil, as you do, but I remember Him commenting on the Change, He said that the Oil that came out looked brand new  :o

Who'd have thought 4 litres of oil would cost more than a big, luxurious Vauxhall?

The VS50 Code is still working today, also today you can also use FLASH50 which gets you 50% Off Oil and Filters.  :y

There are 3 VX Dealers near me that sadly wont do Trade Club anymore (TBH I gave up my TC Card some time back), my nearest one did offer to open a Trade Account (Not TC) but did warn me if it wasn't used on a regular basis it would get nuked.

In another breath, same Dealer said He would consider opening a Trade Account as an OOF option as long as I managed or guaranteed the payment side somehow, yet to be defined, but they would only deliver locally ('ish) and not Post so kind defeats the excersize.  :(

I cant comprehend why people piss about with egay for this sort of stuff. Too expensive, and my issues getting the right stuff delivered in a sensible time frame are well documented.


Ordered some standard 10w40 semi (and some more expensive stuff for the Pussy) at 11:30, 24.99+VAT from dealer. It was delivered by 14:30.

Lichfield,Tamworth and Burton on Trent counters no longer recognize "trade club" and i'm no longer a member of a vauxhall club to have a trade card anyway
 they don't take travis perkins ,whickes ,B&Q trade cards either  ;D

ebay delivers it within 48 hours ,so far ,with tracking  :)

Never in my experience. Ever.

Don't ever say that to Mrs TB, as she's quite angry some tat from egay - UK seller, good established feedback - only arrived this morning after weeks of chasing. She ordered it nearly a month ago.  Even when I order stuff from the likes of Banggood (no, its not a knocking shop), they can get that from China to me in less than 2 weeks normally, its an absolute bloody disgrace that most egay retards take ages...

...though I suspect that most egay sellers don't even stock items, and order on purchase, despite claiming in stock.

Lots of ebay sellers drop ship and have no stock  >:(
lots pretend to be UK based and are not  >:(
always worth looking at the contact details at the end of the listing  :y
(to check they have a uk address ,google the postcode to see if they are a company and not just a house ,or fake address )

Fedex Tracking on my cambelt / waterpump kit says delivery today  ???
not that i;m in a rush for it ,probably get delivered when i'm out tomorrow  ::)

The reason people use ecp/what is there aren't many trade club dealers left,  we haven't got one near hoof'land any more, we use to have 3, we now have 0. Think neatest is now Kettering.  :'(

Or they go past where there used to be a vauxhall dealer to find Arnold shark motorpoint.

My trips to dealers recently have generally resulted in "Nah, that's no longer available sir"

Actually, in a lot of cases, the Chinky sellers are quicker.

I ordered something chavtastic from a chinky egayer, item in China, arrived today, less than 10 days, or 6 business days.

I ordered some ratchet spanners from the well known Chinky knocking shop, Banggood, at the same time, that also turned up today (buy courier - how do they do it for what I paid :o).


The pack of nuts I ordered from a UK company based up North at the same time is still not here.

Various reasons. the Chinese Gov subsidizes or pays in full a lot of the Shipping cost for Export Merchindise to promote there Export Economy, Chinese and Hong Kong Post also have some excellent shipping deals with the big Courier Players, in Particular USA, Europe and the rest of Asia, they will fill a Cargo or Air Freight Container, once full it sits outside the Airports or Shipyards and then gets sold onto the Shipping or Airlines as a cheapest Bucket Seat type option when available, that in turn get handled by the Courier or gets sent directly to UK Warehouses (normally just outside Heathrow, Hayes or Uxbridge) and is then Couriered or Posted on for peanuts.

Sometimes you see on some of these Bigger Chinese Sellers an option on which Warehouse Ship from, ie, Hong Kong, Chinese or USA, Europe Warehouses, but in actual fact its all from the same Warehouse but just shipped differently or on different time scales dependent on which Chinese or HK Gov is footing the bill, Customs and which Courier is being used.

I had occasions where Ive ordered some tat from China, with say a week difference on the items and the both turn up on the same day, or same day but different couriers  :D, down side is whilst we'll getting all this cheap tat from China with almost Free Delivery, if its the wrong item or doesnt work then its starts to get expensive to return it.  :(

Very informative  :y
I suspected the cheap post was subsidized by the China government.

as for the cost of returning an item "wrong item or doesn't work" that is not my fault, so I won't be paying  ;D
when I've been in that situation before ,from sellers from UK and further afield, I've  emailed and said "send me a pre paid postage label if you want this junk back" most just refund ,some have sent out a return label,sometimes it has to be resolved by ebay & paypal .

some things i'm happy to buy knowing it's china tat , some things I'm prepared to pay more for ,like Gates timing belts
meat and potatoes I buy from a local-ish farm shop
