Post by CNHSS1 » Mon Apr 20, 2009 2:53 pm

cant believe no-one else has posted, so thought i would, mainly after being given a tour of their facility by Graham himself.

although they dont have a showroom full of scimitars for sale anymore (showroom worthy ones are few and far between these days :lol: ), Graham and the team are still scimitar guys at heart. the whole building including all its nooks and crannies, is filled with scimitar parts and memories. no one has anything like their stock holding, its huuuuge :shock:. lots of repair sections and panels too should someone have a fender bender, and crates, yes crates, of each component!!

its worth giving them a call if you need something as my ordered bits hit my desk usually before i arrive at the office next day which is some service 8)

maybe not as cheap as a rusty scrapyard 25year old item, or some ebay special which may, or may not fit :roll: , but definitely worth a shot

I have to agree!

The service is GW is second to none, and pretty much everything is cheaper than Eaby. I`ve just rung up and order a gasket for my carb. A full £5 cheaper than Ebay, less P&P, and advice offered. You can`t knock it.

My 5A is a rolling restoration, but everytime I`ve ordered something its been there the following day. And thats helped to keep my enthusiasm going!!


Cheers
Stephen

I have bought a lot from them over the years my SE5 has been sitting about in pieces. Great selection at very fair prices. Better than a couple of the other traders recommended by the club who have supplied used parts in new boxes (!), a combination of SE5, SE5A and SE6 parts for my SE5 and not wanted to do anything about it. GW's have never pulled any of those tricks so I'll happily continue dealing with them. :)

Can't fault Grahams lads for service and understanding whenever I call up with a list of "novice" style questions and parts request's.

Just put another order in to them today and Dan was most understanding and helpful in suggestion places where Graham himself gets various bits and pieces.

Completely agree. As a fairly new owner, I have my fair share of questions to ask and they are always willing to entertain my stupid queries on the 'phone and do their best to help me out. I've ordered quite a few parts from them and they have always arrived first thing the next day and at a reasonable price as well. Thumbs up.

Agreed. Mind you I've always found QRG equally good.

As a coupe owner, I find QRG stocks more relevant parts and Nigel's knowledge and service is brilliant.

Hello Every One

Just got one of Graham Walker's Stainless Steel bumper kits, with Stainless Steel overiders, the kit comes complete with SS washers and highly polished SS bolts,

Very good value for money.

Can't say this wonderful experience is what I've experienced!!!
Last couple of times I've been treated like I'm phoning a new car dealership. First time I was told I've got a spurious gearbox (it's the original from the factory) second time couldn't do anything with a chassis number.
Have really gone down in my estimation - that's way I've voted with my wallet and found other suppliers
