You guys in the USA/Canada dont know how lucky you are !!!

Having such a reliable competitive source of quality parts just a click away !!

I can never understand the mentality of people who post on here asking about alternate online parts suppliers. For the sake of a nickle or dime they want to take that that sort of gamble!!

Those of us aliens on here have to keep our fingers crossed & deal with dodgy brothers fly by night internet suppliers. Maybe one day Fastlane & Allpartsexpress will see the error of their ways & go global !!! Please Mr Wood

Thanks for the superhuman turn around time on orders. Hope you tell Lee all your tricks!

Happy Retirement.

WOW, here it is 9:47pm Saturday, and I just read this. I too will be sad to see you go Phill. Thank you for all the help with my orders and taking the time to manually get my credit card to work through the glitch in the security system, every time I use it.

Enjoy your time with your family and Retirement, I to will miss talking to you.

Charlie

Sad to see him go, he has helped us out many times in finding special parts. Including a sway bar repair kit just a week ago!

Damm. I am sorry to hear that, for selfish reasons only. Phil was a great help to me when I had my 240D, a real gentleman. He will be missed. Best wishes for your retirement Phil.

Call me cynical. I certainly hope this isn't a cost cutting move.
Pro sports and politics have me wary of the "spend more time with my family" retirement. I'm just saying...... Nicely.....
On a less cynical note, I always got outstanding service from Phil, but of course, that is certainly the norm......
Sorry to see him go!!

I hope Phil has a great time! Hopefully Roy will still be around as well.

Phil was always prompt in parts, and communications!
