It pays to shop around
I'm not normally one for shopping around but the last couple of days I have been searching for a couple of things. Firstly a new rubber surround for the windscreen of my off road Land Rover Defender. The screen has to come out for it to be done.

Three quotes £150, £128 and the the last one £78!

Next I needed four all terrain tyres for the same vehicle.

£648, £576, £540 and the last one just now £459.48, nearly £200 cheaper than the first quote!

What a difference, it's a buyers market, shop around.

having just retired from the motor trade i would have paid no more than £50 for the rubber fitted, and £60 for a quality tyre for off road . huge mark up but thats why i retired at 45.

So me being Joe Public did quite well I think. The tyres were BF Goodrich 235/85 R16s.
