VW Heritage. Parts

Post by GTXGTXGTX » Thu Oct 07, 2021 9:49 pm

Maybe I am just just unlucky but the few times I have bought from VW Heritage the parts have been poor quality.
The latest being the below. Advertised as Genuine VW and £14 each!

These will have to be returned on principle.ImageImageImage

Do they have a VW product code stamped into them?

The ones in the link from eBay seem to be stamped…

Yes they don’t look like the pictures… Is the bolt lose?

If the bolt is held in place so it will not spin when fitting or removing I don’t think it really matters as the clamp is bolted to the wishbone and only need to the anti roll bar still.

Maybe see what they say about them?

They will probably fit but it's the principle. You can't advertise genuine parts and then send cheap imitations. Have contacted them.

Let us know what they say as it’s not business for such a big company
