    PVD Strut Brace Update

    Spoke to PVD - who still haven't got these from the supplier.

    Seeing as this has passed the 11/02 cut off date, I have got a refund. Happily given by an apologetic PVD.

    I have asked for receipt of the refund, just in case, but other than that, sorted.

    IF anyone wants to do the same then please call PVD on 01604 797969.

    I have spoken to Pete today about various bits for my car, I asked about the strut braces and they are just as annoyed as you are, they have been promised and promised by the supplier and really are waiting for these to arrive asap.

    They will let you all know when they arrive and will hope that those that have asked for the refund may be tempted to buy them in the end. Dont forget they dont really want 10 astra G strut braces sitting on the shelves either. So it is frustrating for themselves.

    No doubt Matt, thanks for the update. Just think it has been too long. As you say, could be tempted when/if they ever do arrive. Until then I think I'll keep hold of my cash.

    That's unfortunate.

    Wonder how many people wished they had gone for the same as me and Pete now? :roll:

    On the plus side . . .
    if people take refunds, and there are strut braces sitting on the shelf . . .


    They may be discounted

    Just in case people who did'nt want to buy at the time want to buy now !

    I believe PVD are still going to order all 10 in, as they have paid for them. So they will want to shift them no doubt

    Spoke to PVD today and was offered a replacement first type strut brace (twin tubular version) for the same price. I've decided to wait a few more weeks as they are fairly confident that the Raid version will be here by then. If not I'll accept the replacement but would much prefer the style I originally ordered.
    52 Astra G 1.8, 18" Mille Miglia alloys, 325mm Brembo 4 pot conversion, Coupe leather interior, Raid strut brace, Whiteline rear ARB, Irmscher bits (skirts, Carbon steering wheel, Bonnet extension, M3 mirrors, boot & roof spoiler), Reiger Rear Diffuser & Front Bumper, Koni Adj. dampers, 35/30 Vogtland springs, Duplex quad exit ASCAR stainless exhaust.

    PVD do have 1 of the first style in stock. Which is the one that you were offered.

    Checked the CC statement today - no refund - another phone call tomorrow !
