check the page about chrome parts as well.

1) A r m a t u r e n r i n g e . d e       NEW

Around the instruments
They must be the first one to offer these to the F and TF owner and I guess it will become quite popular as they will ad a nice and stylish detail to the car. I have got my doubts about the skills required to install a set of these, but others have stated that it is straight forward. Price for the set: € 49,00 (incl. Mwst./VAT). Partnumber: MGFTR0305

Around the Heater Controls
Set of three, can be used on the F and TF: Price: € 33,00 (incl. Mwst./VAT). Partnumber: MGFHR/1004

Although they don't really offer a lot of chrome parts, the choice on alloy parts is bigger. Let's have a look at which parts we could order at B&G.

Three knobs per set, and it is important to let them know if you're driving an Mk1 or an Mk2.. The photograph below is from a MkII model. If your car is different from this it is a MkI model. MkI Price: £40.98 (ex. VAT) (for the set of three), (approx. €68.44); Stock No: BGF9020

3) M G   R o v e r

Alloy Heater Switch

A very popular item, or at least in the past, 'cause you could order them for a fiver. They went into back order, and now the prise went straight up. Time to call my dealer (not UK based, but located in Belgium) and see what price he could offer...

  

partnumber: JFD000020MAQ (one knob)
material: solid alloy (32g/knob)
price: € 6.98 (VAT inlcuded, Belgium, March 2003); £19.79 (United Kingdom, March 2003)

The one that was in back order arrived with a € 36.49 price tag. (April 2003)
