50 percent off would still be too expensive

Depends what you are after not many GOOD motor shops about these days and getting less . The new formula one brigade are afraid to get there hands dirty and have to have a new car . When my mates and me started it was a sat a/ noon trip to a scrap yard for bits and a tin of paint nicked out of your mams cupboard hence car of several colours . You where just a twinkle in your mams eye . One mate had a Triumph Renown another a huge fat Austin A? along with other lads Jowet Javelin and we all helped each other out .
MAINLY BUMP STARTING and towing . Along with no plastic money to get your stuff pay later .

I have recently re-discovered my local motor factor who, along with supplying the trade has a small shop area of more common stuff but can get you anything.

Most importantly, it is staffed by knowledgable long timers who can and will help to find a part for you.

The retail prices they display are high, similar to Halfords, but they will give you a decent trade (ish) discount when they get to know you.

I've started to get all my consumables here and I find the experience far more satisfying than the big supermarkets or buying online.

Nice one Bob, I go out of my way to support my local independent, people would be surprised what they can source and the contacts they have

I started what eventually turned into a motorcycle spares import and distribution business after discovering the auto supply chain of Brown Bros. They were happy to cross match filter and bearing part numbers as well as offering trade discount which I obtained with ease.

Even in our small town we have Eurospares and CES (who support classic rallies).
A tool shop where I bought a socket for my spinner tool half the price of Halfords !
Also two motor spares shop very well stocked and last of all a good scrap yard.
