I would like to see how many Western Europeans are here.
Could be interesting to know where you're from, where you go for maintenance, where you buy parts,...
I'm from Belgium near Bruges. At this time I'm going to a Ford dealer for maintenance and some of the already fixed problems because I don't know where else to go. (and that's 1 of the reasons why I started this post)
Other parts are being ordered online, like my denso starter and Delphi CPS.
Im from the UK , i get my parts either from a local supplier who charges silly money , or my best preference is when i go to my vacation home in florida i get them from there , fill my suitcases with little bits and pieces. most i came back with was 2 brake discs, steering stabiliser,diff gaskets, oil filters, fuel filter and light bulbs (as they dont even supply the same fitment here in the uk) then i was at the limit for my baggage allowance with my clothes packing in there too.
for maintenence i have to throw the Ex into a local truck depot as its too heavy for the 3.5 tonne lifts here, to be honest they do a good job ,i supply the parts , they fit them.
cannot comment on my waste of time local ford dealer as i am still waiting for parts for the wiper mechanism recall from 3 years ago , just hope the truck catches fire when no-one is in it due to this fault , then sue the *** off em for incompetence.

The Problem is that "Ford USA" and "Ford Europe" act as if they were 2 different companies.
Here in Germany there are just a few licensed "Dual Dealers" - with the respective pricing...
The first spare parts I ordered were from german US-Parts dealer until I discovered that the same parts were sold at "Summitracing.com " and/or "Rockauto.com" for half the price.
They have international shipping and in combination with PayPal the ordering is easy and cheaper as the detour with german traders.
I've layed eyes on the Edelbrock Performer Truck Intake.
Direct in Germany it costs 1097,97€ + shipping
Summit offers it for 770,27€ - shipping included

I lived in Deutschland for 10 years ('73-'83)
I'm currently in Mississippi.
I've helped residents of Europe obtain parts here and have shipped them overseas.
PM me if you think that I can be of assistance.
