Greetings and Salutations!
I was shopping around for prices and availability for a clutch Assy for my Astravan today and the first quote I received was approx £150 plus VAT which I thought was reasonable. Contacted Vauxhall dealer for other parts that appeared to be main dealer only and out of curiosity asked for a price for the same clutch. The quote I received was (from memory) £347 plus VAT. Chappie asked if I had a quote from elsewhere and thought that was as far as that conversation would go. He told me they have introduced a system where they could source stock from other Vauxhall Dealerships which were either bankrupted stock or returned items. After about a minute or so, he then said he could match that price and it would be with me in a couple of days!
So it just goes to show that its always worth while to try the main dealer for prices....and you know that you are getting the genuine article as well.
