Mr. White Shoes
Hopefully you'll get the parts soon and the Mini will be back on the road still in 2020.
Thnak, and yes, I suppose that K Sport has had problems with sourcing and shipping and what-have-you in these times of CV19, but a 3-5 week delivery time has now become 3 (-5??) months for what is essentially just some hardware to overhaul the calipers (the two part sliders, the little 12.9 retaining bolts, the anti-rattle clips, the pad retaining bar, and the rubber bleed valve covers). I did not order need to order new pistons (actually they're fine, the design is really good in my view), and I sourced the discs and pads elsewhere. I feel a bit bad for Oli who must have wasted a lot of time trying to get something out of them, but his job is not yet done.Can’t believe you’re still having trouble with Ksport, that’s really poor on their part.
Great that the car is back on its wheels.
I should probably have just sent these fucking calipers off for an overhaul by a brake specialist and they'd just fab what they need, if they didn't have the right bits to hand. What a complete fucking joke.I dont think there is any excuse for that level of poor service.
I ordered some bits from a classic mini place, 2 days later they were in my hands, granted its a uk company to a uk customer but still..
These were ordered in October with VAT in the normal course. As it happened, they were only 'sent for shipping' on 22.12.20, in which case they should have arrived by the end of the year and and no duty would have been applied on arrival. Instead, they only left the UK on 14.01.21 and duty was applied on arrival in Finland on 20.01.are they not removing the VAT here though now?
