Hey guys check this company out. Based in the south of France and they are re-manufacturing almost every nut and bolt for the Group B cars. Amazing stuff :o

Be warned, the prices are astronomical. I was quoted £1,475 + VAT for a dry sump oil tank.

A few companies that make such things in UK have quoted around £400 for the same tank.

That's right!... £1025 each on right/left door alone..
I was going to sell all the very rust free parts from my car like doors/bonnet,wings etcc and found out that I cannot sell it too cheap.
Never mind, moved on to group C...

Personally I feel it's good to have the option to buy the stuff, it may not suit everyone's budget but at least it is available! For years there was no alternatives and bear in mind it is FIA spec!

Fionn,

I agree it's great that they have produced the parts especially the larger diameter hubs and fully floating axle parts, and parts like that were never going to be cheap, but they really do slap on the mark up.
