Shocking News

Ok it’s not shocking news, it’s great news if you want a Bilstein Shocks for your Mustang.

Our Stock:

Adam is now waiting for his first full delivery of shocks to come from Bilstein to us, hopefully in the next week or so. We have a very a limited supply of 2015 to 2020 Mustang shocks from Bilstein (below), but more are definitely on the way. 🙂

They can be bought as just a front set, rear set or a complete kit. Fronts here:

The rears set:

Anybody who knows about Bilstein products won’t need us to tell you that these products sit at the very top of their game for performance.

Adam has got a little wall embellishment for the offices as well.

The stock range has has been increasing even in these difficult times. But some parts are becoming increasing harder to find and keep in stock.

We would like to point out something to the first time customers who have been a little less than ‘understanding should we say’. We have had a couple of enquiries as to why our stock is sometimes more expensive than other suppliers. The answer was explained to a customer in our offices by Adam. The conversation went along the lines of this:

Customer: I want to buy (xxxx), but So and So has it £35 cheaper than you.

MM: Sorry, but that is our price, we are even squeezing our own margins at that cost.

Customer: I won’t pay your prices.

MM: No problem, the parts are in short supply, you don’t have to buy from us.

Customer: But I want the part.

MM: Why didn’t you buy it elsewhere if you can get it cheaper?

Customer: They haven’t had any in stock for a while now.

MM: We could be even cheaper than So and So if we don’t have them in stock either.

Customer: Will you match their price?

MM: Nope, we don’t price match. I take it you don’t want the part then?

Customer: Do you take Credit Cards?

That was a genuine (part of) conversation that took place in the Mustang Maniac office. The customer walked out with the part and he paid the price. We don’t rip people off, we have noticed an increase in prices due to the shortage of some parts. Luckily we have plenty of them. Even Ford dealers buy parts from us!!

Customer Cars:

Last week Yogi was taking apart a damaged engine, which was test fired on the rig and then put back into the car. Here the engine was primed with oil to make sure all was OK.

Then it was fitted back to the car. Plumbing was to be fitted and all the electrics to follow of course.

So far the new beating heart is making all the right noises.

Our Cars:

The Falcon has had some interior work done to her in the shape of the gauge cluster and trim.

The outside trim has been colour coordinated with the dash

We even managed to grab a pic of Gary applying some TLC to bring the paint back to life again.

With the Covid lockdown process about to take hold again, now is a good a reason as ever to get the parts in for the little projects you have on the go. Unlike some, we do have plenty of stock at our WebShop.

    • Thanks Simon. We appreciate it when people understand our point of view. Like you say we have to buy the stock and store it, wages to pay etc. We try to help out where we can, we even have a trade discount facility subject to conditions of course. We just can’t please everyone unfortunately. ☹
