Evening all, just in the process of putting together a shopping list of parts I need to buy in the very near future.
Where currently is the best/most cost conscious place to buy 964 parts? Looking at Rosepassion and they seem pretty good v's Design 911. May go to main dealer tomorrow as they have often surprised me previously.

Lots of rubber seals required, external trim pieces, rear light lenses and rear bumper heat shields are among the goodies I'm looking for.

Any other companies I should be considering?

Happy holidays by the way.

Have usually found rosepassion to be the cheapest and their service is good too. Bought loads of stuff from them for the '64 over the last couple of years, including a few of the bits you mention above.

Hi Thomas,

I almost always use OPC, get decent discount and parts are readily available. Even manage to get new fuel tubes between Christmas and New Year within a couple of days.

I also use Euro Car parts and take advantage of the numerous sales.

Happy buying

Steve

Hoping there are a few knowledgable folks on here for a very quick answer.

Are these rear lights and central reflector at ECP likely to be genuine Porsche parts as I am not aware of any aftermarket supplier. Need answer before 9pm as stumbled onto a cracking sale which makes these a real bargain.

"VM parts are parts fitted by the vehicle manufacturer"
It says if you click on the link describing the part so I'd say yes it's likely to be original.
Though it's always worth checking OPC some things I've found to be cheaper than ECP with the 10% discount you'd get if you tell them you're a member of the owners club ..... Even if your not they don't check.
Also are you registered with ECP, if you are they send an email every other day offering a 30% discount
Lastly have you considered changing the lenses only, ECP sell them, it's a diy job but from what I've read on Rennlist as long as the instructions are followed it seems to work .... Involves cooking them in the oven, take the chicken out first though and preferably if you have another half wait till she's out, just as I will when cleaning my cam tower in the dishwasher Rolling Eyes

Thanks for the reply Avi, I decided to hang on and check out OPC. As you say ECP have sales every other day and even have a decent sale on until end of Jan.

Just wasn't sure about quality but got to be better than the shabby ones I have. I did look at the lense covers but after spending on the reps ray I want to get a proper finish.

Hi, I found the link for just the lenses
http://www.design911.co.uk/fu/pt70_192_-cma81-cmo107/Porsche/964--911--1989-94/Indicators-Rear/
It's design 911 not ECP
Though for whatever reason they're selling then almost £30 cheaper on eBay
£72 each including postage
If you're reasonably competent at diy they would look as new when fitted.

Just noticed that you'd replied, yes a complete new lens would be the easier option, albeit more costly ... Maybe I'm just a cheapskate bargain hunter ha nooo

Im mid-way through a refurb of both rear lights, using the replacement lenses. I'll let you lads know how I get on, by updating on my build thread Smile. problem is im refurbing my BBS LMs at the same time!

Thanks again to Ian and Steve for light donations, it's taken all 3 so far!

Hi Thomas,

Bought my lights and reflectors from our local OPC very recently, if you are interested I can dig out the invoice and let you know prices.

Before Garry painted my car, I had the reflector and lights wrapped, which I really liked, but as soon as I got the car back I thought it deserved new bits. I often ponder wrapping the new parts as I prefer the darker red effect.

Steve

I light spray with red tint may be the better and more natural looking option Steve Smile

I'll do plenty pics and a write up Smile

I was hoping to be gluing the new lenses in place this lunch time, but I've had to order a new cutting disc set for the dremmel.

I'll sort it this weekend thumbsup
