As Craig has mentioned GW, thought it best if I mentioned QRG as the other main club trader in all things Scimitar. I haven't personally bought anything from them mail order (but know Nigel and have indulged in a few of his Curborough specials) I gather from other (mainly SS1 owners for some reason) that their service and technical backup is very good indeed.

Got to agree there, I went to them having been recommended by Avo and they were able to advise me exactly which shocks and spring set I should get for my application. Extremely helpful.
All I need is the time off from work to fit them. :roll:

Also it was one of only two occassions where the 24hr post actually arrived within 24hrs which is a miracle for this neck of the woods!! :lol:

For SS1 bit's it's QRG every time for me!

Spent a fair sum of money with Nigel since the begining of the year, always fast delivery (apart from the Petrol tank) and is always happy to give advice.

Highly reccomended :D

Big thumbs up for Nigel at QRG, collared him on the phone yesterday, gave him the wrong part number, and today I'm graced with the correct NOS downpipe for my SS1.

This is only the second time I've used QRG, but I'm impressed :-)

Nigel's always given me fast service and his international postage is much cheaper than GW's.

Endose all the above, as I've had good service for parts & advice for a few years for my previous car SS1, and now for my GTC, from Nigel and his staff

QRG... Brilliant delivery

Post by myredscimitar » Fri Nov 28, 2014 12:35 pm

Top marks to Nigel and UPS ( yet again )

Ordered a set of SS1 rear shoes over the phone about 1200 yesterday, UPS delivered them at 1100 today.

If we weren't going out for a boozy lunch in a few minutes they would have been fitted within 24 hours of finding I needed them.

Great service as usual.

The Scimitar SS1 is not so much a car as a lifestyle statement; it basically says "I'm mad, and I don't care".

I'm aware this is an old thread, but Nigel continues to be a font of wisdom.
He sees to know every thing about my GTE 6B & postage is always prompt,
& I'm in Australia.

Nigel runs a great outfit at QRG. He’s supplied all the parts required so far for my 5 including some rare parts. Advice on tap and prompt delivery to France .Can’t praise QRG highly enough ......in fact where’s my list. :wink: :D

I wholeheartedly agree. John and Greta had a great attitude to customers when they established QRG and Nigel has maintained this. I just hope Nigel manages to maintain his enthusiasm if the plans for redevelopment of the current premises go ahead.
