    Glow Plug Royal Rip Off

    Hello peeps .. continuing the good fight against outrageous dealer rip offs .. this time it's the Kubota dealer.. Personally I rate my Kubota dealer very highly http://www.youngplant.co.uk/ they have served me well over the years .. but this price difference is too much to bear, I needed new glow plugs for one of my micro diggers .. a Kubota K008-3

    Young Plant have just been taken over by a Hyundai dealer and Im not sure if this has any bearing ? .. but whatever.. the Kubota price for a glow plug is 36.40 plus VAT and delivery I got 3 delivered in an hour from http://www.dingbro.co.uk/ for 12.15 each (they matched an online Ebay price .. all credit to them ).. the Kubota part cross matches to an NGK plug

    It's always good to get the price down a bit, it's good for us and it's good for the customers.

    I use use my local motor factors for bits and pieces like that, they are used to me now and very often let me have a rummage around on the shelves for bits like heater plugs
