  • Ooooh... Boxes

    We know photos of boxes are pretty dull and if we posted a photo of every delivery we recieved you'd soon get tired of seeing them... but this one is a special.

    First delivery of the Eibach 23mm ARB's ready for kitting up and on the webshop as soon as we wade through the rest of todays orders and deliveries!

    At this rate we'll have to put some Saturdays in!

  • Genuine VW T3 Front Discs - Late 251407617K

    This is something we started being asked for last year and since then we've kept one or two sets on the shelf.
    We've found that we keep selling out before the next delivery has landed though, so figured we should stock more!

    It may seem strange to sell the Genuine VW part alongside those from Original Equipment Manufacturers, but its nice to have the choice, and in the case of Brake Discs we're happy to make an exception.

  • Trailing Arm Comparison - Repro to Original

    One of the major advantages of having a specialist workshop next door to our warehouse is that when the opportunity arises we can make comparisons between original parts and aftermarket parts.
    Today we had some original trailing arms removed from a T3 for new bushes, so took he opportunity to do a weight comparison - Original against New Aftermarket (JP Group) arms.

    Considering the original arm has at least a few years of muck on it, not to mention wax, and the usually cut/broken bolts left in it... they're pretty similar in weight which suggests they're pretty similar in material thickness and quality of weld.

    We expected nothing less to be honest... but now we know :)

    Shout At The Computer! Generic picture stolen from Google image search of an attractive lady that doesn't actually work here. Notice she's using builders tools, ours aren't that clean...

    How do, Friday afternoon and the dust is settling from a manic week, Royal Mail is here just taking the last of this weeks deliveries, UPS went not that long ago.

    We've got a new look for our webshop, Liking it? we are, much improved search, responsive site that works as well on your phone or tablet as it does on your desktop.

    It's still very much work in progress, we have lots of revisions to make to tidy it up yet, uploading the skin was the first step, lots of different functions and fiddly bits still to come.

    Yes, we know some of the images are a bit squiffy, some of the styling is a bit odd but we'll get there, it's a lot of work!

    So, purpose of inane Friday afternoon ramble is to say...

    ...We're moving a lot of parts around, splitting categories, creating new categories in an attempt to make things easier for you to find, you may find an empty category, you might find things in the wrong category, we know, we're on with it.
    If you can't find something then try the search, that's what we use when we want to find something quickly, most parts now have VW part numbers associated with them so if you know the number the paste it in the search box.
    Of course, if you're really struggling then drop us an email and we'll get back to you ASAP.
    We've reduced the workshop loading to help us get on top of all this shuffling about and making a concerted effort to try to get the piles of stuff we have sat here going dusty listed on the webshop, we can't sell it if you don't know we have it!

    That's it from us, we're off to enjoy the start of Autumn!

  • Notice of impending doom, or maybe not.

    doomed

    Morning, we're just letting you know things could all go a bit wobbly later on today, we're going to be doing some maintenance on the webshop and it might act a bit weird, so, if it does, sorry!

    We got back from Busfest last night and we've got a few loose ends to tie up there as well as unpack the van but all orders received before 9am this morning have been printed and are in the warehouse currently being packed and should leave today.

    If you are using the webshop and it does something weird then let us know at [email protected] and we'll pass it onto the propeller heads down at SplitPixel.

    Not long now until the world's largest VW van event!

    We're back trading this year, in our old spot in the corner of the halls.

    As the last few years we won't be selling any parts, just taking a few items to display, no pressure of selling to give us the opportunity to have a proper chat with our lovely customers, it's not all about the money!

    So, if you need any help, advice or just fancy a bit of Yorkshire hospitality then bob past and introduce yourselves.

    Again, as in previous years we've set a free shipping method on the webshop so you can order your parts in advance and we'll take them to the show for you, please don't order the side of a van or anything because it won't fit in the shop van!

  • Have a great bank holiday!

    Beaumaris, Anglesey

    Just a quick note to prove we're still here beavering away!
    To say it's busy is an understatement!

    As it's the bank holiday we'll be closed until Tuesday morning when we'll start wading through the weekends orders, please be patient if you have emailed, you will get an answer just not at 5 past 9 on Tuesday morning!

    Have a great weekend, wherever you end up!

     

  • Dont get too excited just yet, but...

    T3 Trailing arms are now listed on the webshop.

    t3501402e

    You can't buy them yet as they're not in actually in stock. We don't do pre-orders, or other gimmicks to encourage you to pay for things before we've paid for them!
    And we try not to take money for things we don't have... its better off in your bank account than ours we're sure you'll agree and we'd only spend it on more quality parts anyway!)

    However, we're getting a lot of enquiries so now you can enter your email in the "Back In Stock Notification" box on the product page, so you'll get an email when they land.

    We have a date of the end of June, so not long now...

    They come with standard rubber bushes fitted, and of course we have the fixings, clips and brake pipes to go with them... including just about everything else you might want to replace at the same time!

  • 15" ATIWE Alloy Wheels for the T3?

    I know we keep banging on about it, but it has never been easier to get quality parts for the T3.
    With premium manufacturers producing new (an old) stuff all the time.

    Imagine if 15" versions of the Atiwe "Cheesehole" wheels were readily available?

    Imagine them in 7Jx15 ET23 and 5x112 PCD.

    Imagine...
