  1. Hi,

    Yes I can get rotors and pads no problem, but have you tried EAI in Sydney / Melbourne for them.

    I find that some wear parts are cheaper at EAI than Citroen, and EAI sell Original Quality parts like Valeo etc.

    Yes I can get seat trim, but it tends to be expensive, especially if the trimming is part of the foam.

    I brought in a seat trim for our C4 VTS and it was over $1,000, but new trims for our Pluriel were much cheaper .

    Send me your Vin # and I'll give you prices, so you have something to compare.

    Best regards,

    Greg
