I've always thought that we could all benefit from an enthusiastic and connected Italian based parts supplier, one who had contacts all over.

When attending Il Mostro Scambio at the Imola racing circuit in 2011 I approached several dealers in the hope that they could be a parts supplier for our Fiat cars. A few expressed enthusiasm in being a supplier to our forum but despite subsequent e-mails, good intentions seemed to die off.

A recent member to our forum Ricambi Storici (Emanuele) has offered such a service and I decided to give him a try. Especially as he came recommended by our respected member Heini131.

I challenged Emanuele to find me a complete set of side trims for my series 1 Argenta. He had 6 pieces in stock and sourced the other two from other suppliers. Impressed I decided to push my luck and see if he had electric window switches and an electronic coolant sensor. Again he came up trumps, from stock. Other parts were added to the list and the package arrived today. All well wrapped and at a reasonable shipping rate.

Emanuelle kept in touch all the way through the negotiations, providing prices, availability, etc sometimes sending e-mails at midnight, Italian time. He speaks excellent English.

To say that I am impressed with his level of knowledge, commitment to customer service and efficient shipping is an understatement.

I'm posting this message to say that in my experience I can recommend this seller to anyone looking for genuine Italian car parts, you wont find a more committed Italian supplier in my experience!  Smiley

THANKS Emanuele.  Smiley

Hello everyone,

I'm happy to say that I can join the line!
It may take some time and not every part can be called a bargain BUT we're talking about fiat originali NOS and of parts where common opinion for the last 15 years was "impossible to find" - Emanuele does his very best and most of the time with success!!
All the rest already said before.

THANKS a lot; also from my friend Bernd  Cheesy Cool Cheesy

Hi All,

Just to let you know I agree with everything that has already been said.  Cool

I recently brought some parts from Emanuele, he emailed photos so I could see the parts before I purchased. Emanuele's English is excellent so communication is very easy & he replies to emails very quickly, the service is superb and the parts were delivered quickly, for which he even supplied me a tracking number. If you need some parts send him an email  Grin

I can confirm the above, a very good source of genuine parts,he found me a gearbot in brown for my super 2000Tc that was impossible to find, and I was brand new in it's originally package!
That impressed me alot!
The price was ok based on that it was impossible to find elsewhere..

He is a very nice and honest man that a I recommend!

Cheers

Hi Guys,
Just to add to this post. I recently had a reply from Emanuele (Ele) on this forum regarding a replacement oil sump plus a few other items for my 131 Twin Cam. Emanuele was extremely helpful and informative sending photographs and regular emails. I am now in possession of the items which were delivered in secure packaging by courier and I am delighted. I will not hesitate in using Emanuele's services in the future and I would definitely recommend him.

Hi everyone

In line with everyone else here I just want to say a massive thank you to Ele for yet another box of goodies arriving in the post this week. It's like Christmas all over again!

Over the past year or so Ele has sourced all manner of parts for me and I have been delighted with everything I have purchased from him. His service is second to none and he's a pleasure to deal with.

Thanks Ele!
