    Hello Fellow 5 Nuts!

    I'm starting to think I'm the only one that looks at this forum!!

    Any how, I'm looking to buy some rear brakes for my 5 from a Gordini/Alpine turbo.
    I will need the triangular plates which bolt to the suspension arms that support the calipers, the hub assemblies, and cables, calipers and caliper slides etc.
    Whilst I am chasing the whole set up, I appreciate that you may not have all I'm after?
    Please contact me with any thing that you may have of interest. Seized calipers, worn discs not an issue, mainly need the mounting hardware.As the mechanic said to mad max "A piece from here...and a piece from there!" :D

    Let me know please,

    Thanks Mark,

    I think the seller is a little confused, They dont have the lever for the handbrake by the looks!

    Unless I'm the one that's confused?

    Probably concerned about how you will pay and language problems.
    There is alot more trust when using le boncoin.
    Ask re payment, bank transfer, paypal allthough it is not as popular over here. Cheques rule here.
    Ring as you may get some one who speaks English or at least understands.
    If you email and use a translate program, keep the english simple and in short sentences, and If you are not sure use the program to translate back to show the mistakes. Do not try to use formal French. Do not be long winded with what you have to say. Check discriptive words translation as they can be used in other contexts and situations.

    For example if you want to say "a blow" in french and you get the situation or context wrong then you may say "a shot" or "a neck" when spoken in French
    Send the French translation with the english message just in case there could be confusion.
    You could also learn French the mother language of your cars maker.

    Hi Read,

    Do I take it that you live in France?? Hey you could be the middle man I'm after he he.
    My wife can speak fluent French and I can read enough to get me by!
    I've trusted before and it cost me over a $1000 with nothing to show for it, and yes...the con man was French!
    Before that event I was happy to pay which ever way was best for both parties. But since then Paypal is how I do my business. Nothing is safe in this world, but I need assurances that a system is in place to prevent fraud! I have been using the most simplest of sentences, and been getting the Mrs to check to make sure they make sense. The other problem being that Collisimo international aren't the cheapest either. For example it cost me 170 Euro to get a set of torsion bars and roll bars sent out from France.
    If you live in France and are willing to help me procure what I'm looking for let me know. I don't want a lot, just a few parts which are easily obtainable in France and U.K but near on impossible to come by here in sunny Australia.
    Pm me if your interested!
