a) Acceptance of Terms & Conditions. These Terms and Conditions apply to all contracts of sale by the Seller unless varied in writing. The placing of an Order for Goods shall be deemed conclusive evidence of the Buyer's acceptance of these Terms and Conditions. Nothing in these Terms & Conditions shall be construed as affecting the statutory rights of the Customer.
b) All Orders placed by the Buyer for purchases of Goods from the Seller are subject to acceptance by the Seller by delivery of the Goods to the Buyer at which point a legally binding contract is constituted between the Buyer and the Seller.
c) The processing of your payment and acknowledgment of your Order (including sending you an email confirming your Order is being processed) does not constitute legal acceptance of your Order.
d) Occasionally there may be information on our site that contains typographical errors, inaccuracies or omissions that may relate to product descriptions, pricing, product shipping charges, transit times and availability. We reserve the right to correct any errors, inaccuracies or omissions, and to change or update the information or cancel Orders if any information is inaccurate at any time without prior notice (including after you have submitted your Order).
e) Where any Goods ordered are not available, or when an Order contains Goods from different manufacturers, the Seller reserves the right to substitute the Goods for an equivalent or superior product without prior notice.
f) Supply of vehicle identification details. You must supply the vehicle registration or chassis number when placing your Order. Failure to do so may delay the processing of your Order and the delivery of your Goods. Whenever possible the Seller will check that the Goods ordered are correct for the vehicle details supplied but ultimately it's the Buyer's responsibility to ensure that they have ordered the correct part.
a) Orders placed before 4pm Monday to Thursday will be dispatched the same evening for next day delivery. Orders placed before 4pm on Friday will be delivered on Monday unless Saturday delivery is selected. Orders placed anytime over the weekend will be dispatched on Monday for delivery on Tuesday. Suggested delivery dates and promises of delivery are made in good faith and every effort will be made to keep to delivery dates given but time and place of delivery shall not be the essence of this contract and the Seller shall not be liable for any loss caused through delay or failure to deliver. The delivery charge is per order rather than per item, however should your Order contain items from different manufacturers you may need to pay additional shipping charges.
b) If the Buyer Orders Goods from the Website for delivery outside of the UK, they may be subject to import duties and taxes which are levied when the Order reaches the specified destination. The Buyer will be responsible for payment of such import duties and taxes. The Buyer should note that the Seller has no control over these charges and cannot predict their amount. The Buyer should contact their local customs office for further information before placing an Order. Should the Order be returned due to unpaid customs charges the Order will be credited less the outward delivery charge. If you request for the Order to be resent then another delivery charge will be applied.

6. Warranty and Defects
All Goods supplied by the Seller are new and covered by a manufacturer’s warranty. Any Goods supplied by the Seller that are subsequently agreed by the Seller to be defective in design, materials or workmanship will be either replaced under the warranty or the Goods collected and the Buyer refunded. If a part is replaced under warranty the replacement part is covered for the remaining term of the original warranty. The faulty part must be returned otherwise the warranty claim is invalid and no replacement or credit will be given. Should a replacement unit be supplied in advance of receiving back the faulty part and the Buyer fails to return the faulty part an invoice for the replacement unit will be sent to the Buyer for payment. The aforementioned warranties do not apply to damage to the Goods caused by misuse, faulty workmanship, faulty vehicle, operation beyond the limits of rated capacity, neglect or default in the use or application of the Goods. Any part modified in any way without prior authority invalidates the warranty.

A DPF is only covered under the warranty for structural failure. A blocked DPF is not covered by the warranty as the problem originates upstream of the DPF.

Notwithstanding anything contained herein the Seller shall not be liable, under any circumstances, for labour costs, loss of profit, delays in delivery, any direct or indirect consequential loss of any kind whether caused by manufacturing defect, negligence or otherwise.
