    Does anyone here know Douglas Valley Breakers? they are in Standish, Lancashire. It's a bit of a long story, but I need a couple of pieces of the bright trim for the grille on my 456. They have a damaged grille, but want to ship the whole thing halfway round the world, when the parts I need would fit into a cigar tube....

    They are one of the biggest accident repair/salvage companies in the uk for prestige & sports cars..

    Can the trim be easily removed from the grille?

    Thanks for the responses guys. The shiny trim parts of the grille are easy to remove - too easy, they fall out, hence the need for some replacements. There is another F-Chatter in the same situation, Robie from HK, with a 575.

    I did enquire at Eurospares, but the response was a "sign here" order for a new grille at 800 pounds plus shipping.

    I was hoping to contact someone who knows either Douglas Valley Breakers or Eurospares who might be able to plead my case that I don't want a new grille and I don't want to ship a piece of broken plastic/damaged grille halfway round the world. All I need (and so does Robie) is a few lengths of the shiny trim.

    Might try some more pleading emails....

    You might want to try the same question in the Ferrari forum on Pistonheads. There might be someone living locally to DV Breakers who can give an opinion.
