    In the past thread many mentioned parts are much cheape overseas. Where do you get these parts? I have always ordered in the US and have never tried buying overseas. Do you guys buy direct from Italy or ?. Thanks.

    Sorry but I disagree--I get everything from TRutlands--they ALWAYS beat the UK prices and the shipping is a LOT less.

    308GTS a thousand plus posts and you are not familiar with Ferrari UK?!

    Register over at the Ferrari Owner's Site, then you can order parts directly from Ferrari UK and use their terrific parts diagrams and such.

    I will agree T.Rutland's IS great, and I will continue to use and recommend them, but for the most part, on larger ticket items, Ferrari UK has the better price, and selection, even when you factor in the shipping and duty costs.

    Yes, I know about UK parts that are sponsors here but in the other thread it seemed that many alluded to other less known suppliers. I use T. Rutlands most of the time and McCann for some other parts. Thanks.

    The shipping may be less but the service SUCKS. I'm still waiting for a return phone call to tell me if they have or don't have a part it's been over a year now.......... Now I have never ordered from Ferrari UK but I would use them over Rutlands. Incidently that isn't the only time I haven't had them call back when they said they would. I usually order all my parts from GT CAR PARTS in AZ. Bill is great to deal with and they are usually cheaper than the other usual sources

    Hi all.

    I understand that Rutlands and GT Car Parts have good reputations. To those that currently use them or have never tried Ferrari UK I would say....just ask !! We may not always be the cheapest but we often are, + we have an IMMENSE stock holding here with overnight Fedex shipping starting at only $18 away !

    Cheers.

    How is this a good site? They don't show any of their parts and most of the links are dead!

    FYI - Anyone looking for Superformance - This is a slight typo in the above post - It should be :

    Also, while I was looking for it, I found this link for the nice Cobra replicas I see at Crystal Cove all the time :

    never said that TRutlands had a good site for internet users--just that he has the largest selection of NEW & USED parts that you will find in the US. last time I was over there he had better than 20 assorted motors( some good some bad) and about 10 cars being taken apart not to mention a complete wharehouse of new stuff.

    So is it best to just call them and ask about parts? Where are they located?

    Thanks
