THESE ARE THE ONLY ONES THAT FIT PROPERLY

Bull Motif's words not mine!
After all the crap from ESM and bits not fitting or for the job described, why do Bull Motif advertise this. I'm looking for wiper blades Post 1968 and just having a new screen fitted I don't fancy stainless steel claws running back n forth over my new screen it will make an awfull mess.
Do you thing that all these moggie bits from all the suppliers are made by the same firm?
I'm always in the sh*t. It's only the depth that varies!

I'd suggest that the majority of parts come from the same source, but there are some that don't, and it's finding what works that is difficult.
If more folk took time to review their purchases, then suppliers would stop punting the same trash.
It may be that we should have a 'fit for purpose' section on the site, but when the darkside started a survey on poor parts I was one of the very few that replied - figure that one out?

Fit for purpose...... think the page would be blank Pete :roll: :D .
So many replacement parts are now very poor, even the Heritage panels. I really cannot see a way forward and improving from what we have now as Minor specialists simply cannot afford the investment in tooling or re supply from better manufacturers. That is if better manufacturers are actually out there now, most gave up and went out of business when the buying public decided price was more important than quality. So lets not totally blame the Minor suppliers for the rubbish they sell , they can only offer what is available and the quality of this, has been decided by the Minor owners themselves.
