We are trying to make it faster and easy for you to search and shop here, by giving each car it's own specific and unique Car part number (Quick Car Code).

So what is it and how do I get one?
It's a time saver and a car part number, as simple as that. Every car will be allocated a specific set of numbers, a code, so when you find your car on our website for the first time, there should be a code allocated to it at the top of every category page and then one for the individual product category page associated with that car. The second way you will get one is when you order, we will send it to you in your Confirmation / Tracking email.

Why not use the number plate system? I hear you cry.
Good point, but it has three slight problems with the ones available in the UK.
1
) The cars we supply parts for go back as far as 1913 so not all the registrations are on there, if you enter your registration in; it's hit or miss if you get a result.
2) We look after the entire globe not just Blighty, so none of the international car registration numbers work on our systems in the UK. So pointless.
3) Every time you add your registration number into one of those, whether you get a result or not, the owners get a nice fee to pay for the privilege.. err no thanks.

The Revamp and Update of our website.
We are rebuilding this site from Top to Toe with up-to-date Google friendly code. so when you see the message below in any category, everything we have for that car has been uploaded. We are restricting to 4 products groups whilst rebuilding for speed and simplicity. Once complete we should be able to upload many more products.

... And when I get mine what do I do with it?
Copy it and keep it safe for the next time you come back. All you do is add it to the search box on the home page or any page you land on and if we have done our job properly everything for your car should be listed in front of you. Then you just pick the part you want.
Simple, yes?

But not all cars have the car codes yet, why is that?
Building a list of cars is a mammoth task as there are body styles and special editions, then all of those have many different engine sizes, so the first thing to do is build the website with the engine sizes and then you can allocate a code to them, we are still building the engine sizes, won't be long though, but we estimate there should be around 250,000 cars to enter.. so we have some way to go.
