Christmas Closing 2017…

Well, that’s another year…

All orders placed before 5pm on Thursday have shipped, and even a couple of Royal Mail packages we snuck out of the door on Friday Morning. Everything else will ship when we come back to work on Tuesday the 2nd January 2018.

We managed to do a couple of “behind the scenes” jobs this morning before doing the back-ups and a couple of computer updates in the new Brickwerks “Nerve Centre” (that’s our posh new office/canteen :D) that we’ve been putting off for fear of it cocking everything up at a time when we’ve been unseasonably busy.

All that remains is to wish all our customers, old and new, a very Merry Christmas and a happy New Year. We hope everything happens as you hope it will and that 2018 brings you health, happiness and whatever it is you want from your VW.

That’s it… we’re out the door. Just one more very special delivery to make before Chrimbo and then we can maybe open the Quality Street.

Have a good ‘un.


T3 Cruise Control Stalks…

Almost every week we’re asked for the original T3 Cruise Control Stalks.
We’ve gone through all the available options now.
Original T3 stalks are long gone, so we bought all the straight versions from another model that we could find.
We went through the German Language versions and the English too…
They have all now dried up, but people are still converting to GTI and TDI and want to take advantage of the ECU’s cruise control function.

We’ve scoured every model of the era that had cruise as an option and drawn a blank… except this one.

Now, it’s not a perfect solution due to the angle of the stalks when fitted and the modifications required to fit it, but it is the only stalk in the same style as the T3 originals that is now available new with the Cruise Control function.
It’s all explained in the description, so if you want the switches and you don’t mind a bit of messing about to get them, this may be for you.


T3 23mm Front Anti Roll Bar – Update :)

Judging by the number of enquiries we’ve had for these there are quite a few people waiting for news.

The bars have been sat on the shelf here for over a year now, teasing us.
Michael has had one fitted to his Bluestar for the last 12 months as we’ve gone through the development process for the bushes.
To cut a long story short as the bars are a new development, rather than just a reproduction of the factory 23mm bar we’ve had to fine tune the body bushes to suit.
We’re now confident of the design and a recent 1000+ trip around the twists and turns of the Scottish Highlands has confirmed we’ve finally got them right.

So, the eagle eyed amongst you will have noticed a product on the webshop appeared today (HERE).
This is the complete 23mm Kit including bushes and hardware to bolt your drop links on.
It will show out of stock now as we won’t take payment up front until they are in our grubby hands… but you can add your email address to the back in stock notification so you’ll get an email as soon as the bushes are here.

Note that this is the “Late” kit for models with the single bolt on the ‘D’ Bush, kit for the earlier models (2 bolts) is on the way.

Bar is made by Eibach, bushes are made by Powerflex, and they’re put together by your friendly neighbourhood T3 Specialist.
