    Hmm, I wonder if their pricing will be competitive?

    We've already got Caravelle Imports and European Auto Imports in Box Hill, which is pretty handy for me.

    "All of its cars from the 1.1 litre 205 through the ugly duckling 309 to the 2.2 litre 505 GTi had a rightness and a righteousness about them that turned every humdrum drive into a journey. Someone, I once wrote, in the bowels of Peugeot understands handling and how a chassis should feel." - Jeremy Clarkson

    Yeah my mate is one of the part interpreter's at European Auto Imports in Box Hill - if his reaction is anything to go by (he claims his gonna go get a job at BM Spares when they go French) they should be competetive.

    They are probably THE place for BMW spares on this side of Melbourne. Its a big operation down there so we'll see how they go...

    We might be talking about the same mob. There's a place in Dandy specializing in all European including Renault and Peugeot but not Citroen (at the moment anyway), they have new and used parts and are advertising wrecking a Clio, Scenic and have a front half cut Megane and 206, 307, 406. There not called BM spares (can't remember the name) but they do a lot of BMW, Merc, Volvo, Saab and are currently pushing into French cars. Prices are deer though, I've found Caravelle and EAI much cheaper and there product knowledge is far better.

    I think we'll find that as French cars become more popular these "specialists" will pop up everywhere, all I can say is stick to the companies who have stuck with and supported the products when the going was tough.

    Renault Australia have noted that if it wasn't for companies like Caravelle, French Connection, European Auto Imports and lots of others it would be a lot harder to reserect the Renault name then it already is.

    couldnt be more correct, for years i've followed my dad from one french parts place to another, and now finally with my first peugeot i know im still going to go to the same guys whom for years have been making the huge effort of finding parts(espicially with the pre-1980's vehicles) and sharing the same passion for our french beauties as we all do! spanner

    Yeah i know the mob your talking about - i bought a coil for the Fuego about 4 years ago off them. Think they call themselves All European Spares on Bennet St Dandenong. Bit dodgy though. Money hungry Albanians.

    But they did stick their finger in the French pie a lot before recently.

    I'll be sticking with European Auto Imports as long as i get 'mate rates...' or at least they claim to be giving me awesome prices Nah they're top blokes (in case they're reading )

    I couldn't agree more either. These guys have practically kept me on the road for quite a few years. I'm very grateful to them.
