What would an 'indecent Suzuki dealer' be? I shudder to think!

Brownspoint or Boats.net.
Its cheaper, you can get anything you ask for and they tend to able to supply everything for any Suzuki.
I just ordered 160 worth of parts that even including import tax would still have cost me well over 100 more in the UK, assuming they could get me them.
In practice the wait for parts locally from my local dealer mean it doesn't even take much longer to get them, if longer at all.

interesting comment, i ordered NMEA parts via clyde outboard services for my df200 at 2pm tuesday, got text from them 11am next day advising the parts came from suzuki.

i guess it all depends who the dealer is and if the parts are in stock with distributor.

i paid 160 from clyde outboards for parts i could have got at browns for $150, by time you add VAT, shipping, import duty, the handling fee and parcelfarce charge it would have cost 158.88 according to- http://www.dutycalculator.com

sometimes, most times actually, it isn't worth ordering from USA.

cheers

I would have to agree, Bert at Mobile Marine nice chap and gives helpful advice
If he hasn't got it he can order it. and If his numbers not changed its 01297 444164.
I can't find his mobile but its probably online.

An "indecent" dealer is one that takes the telephone enquirey in a less than interested way and then fails to come back to you with price and availability as promised !.

hence the question..........

Thanks for the suggestions guys, will ring round in the morning .

I suppose it is what your experience is ordering parts, I always order from the US and find I always save a packet compared to what I get prices for from any dealers I have asked here. Doesn't mean that there aren't cheaper places but I certainly haven't come across one as yet!
As an example, One part I ordered a few nights ago for just over 50. If I include the whole order import duties, taxes and shipping charges is still cheaper than the cost of this one part only in the UK. I was quoted 97 for the same part from my local suzuki dealer.
All the other parts basically come at cut US prices without any additional taxes or shipping charges as I saved this through the one part above.
Maybe I have just been talking to the wrong UK dealers...
