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!
