Location: Wattle Grove
NSW, Australia

last year when i had to replace my alternator on the 5.0lt i had to buy new and Repco was 40 bucks less than bursons, and they got it in without deposit, they had actually given me trade because they figured 450+ bucks was a lot for an alt.! normally i understand they are Ripco, but this time they came up trumps. - go figure :D

Shame, sounds like a good auto store. But supercheap and autobarn are well priced I guess.

Repco here in Grafton is preeeeeeeeetttttty average to say the least.
We have a store which I'm guessing would be similar to Bursons called Hessions, small store which can overnight most parts. Supercheap just sells rubbish too.

Bursons are slowly getting more stores. I know a bloke from there who is a regional Manager and he told me that new stores are built from sufficient profits from other stores. They do a good trade and we use them where I work for purchasing after market parts for our Used NON Ford cars :)
