Title: What do you mean you want 50 upfront before you'll give me a quote?
Post by: Parisien on 22 February, 2016, 01:41:42 PM
Indeed.

Now things are moving both body and engine wise, I'd thought about ordering the  parts required for brakes, suspension and transmission.

So over the last fortnight I'd dually contacted 4 suppliers in Italy. One emailed me back to say they were off to the Fair in Turin so please contact us a week later. This I did, but still no response, so waited a full week then emailed them again yesterday to get a reply with the above in it this morning.

Is this a new ploy? Needless to say I've more or less agreed to buy from Cavalitto.

Probably costs them time to get the quote from Cavalitto!

Its Cavalitto for me whenever new parts are required. I don't even bother to check his prices as the quality of what he sells is so good. Funnily enough I ordered some Aurelia and Fulvia parts from Enrico last Monday but most unusually heard nothing. Then I got an email on Saturday telling me the parts will be sent today hopefully for delivery tomorrow or Wednesday. Maybe he was at the Turin show or on holiday. Not a  problem as they are just service parts 'for stock'.

I've bought from several suppliers/sellers, some didn't have what I wanted, some had higher/lower prices depending, so overall on this occasion Cavalitto ticked most boxes so get my business, whilst the named firm above won't get asked again!

I have used Cavalitto on quite a few occasions and have impressed with the service and quality

Chaps,

Could one of you put a link so that we may all get in contact with Cavallino please.

Thanks,
