Hello,

Im Mad! I Just bought a damaged F430 coupe. Has anyone got any recommendations for the best places to get parts. Preferably europe based.

It has all round damage inc some which I can only presume was vandal damage after the accident. Accident caused front & rear bumper (cracked & some missing bits), slight creases on one front wing (should repair).D/S rear quarter could do with replacing inc possible suspension damage. Bootlid is missing and one sill cover is non existant. Oh - needs new D/S front light & no mirrors either.

Lots of work, but main prob at the moment is the cheapest place to get the parts.

So far I have found Eurospares & a few bits on ebay.

Anyone any other ideas for suppliers?

Yep, buying accident damaged is the only way I can afford to own a 430.

I have repaired accident damaged before, provided you accept that the resale isnt going to be as easy and you are going to get rock bottom price when you sell, its a good way to own a supercar.

Its risky as underestimating the damage is always a possability, hence why im keen to get the parts at a good price.
