Which (Northern) shop to go to?

Recommended Posts

Hi all, I'm going to driving down from the North East next week & I'm thinking of calling into a shop for a few bits.

A harness & some associated gear. Obviously I want to try one on & make sure I buy the right one for me.

 

I'm thinking of either......

 

https://www.gustharts.com/

 

Or

 

http://www.northernarbsupplies.com/

 

I doubt I'll have time to do both in the same trip so I'm after opinions on the best one to call in, I've never been in either.

 

Thanks in advance.

Not been to northern arb supplies only ordered online from them. Not overly impressed, but things turned up eventually, bit hit and miss.

Gustharts is fine, well stocked, but usually you'll spend about 40% more than you Imagined you would buying other shite on the way out

Ha, always a danger when there are shiny things for sale.
I'll get myself there then. Its less of a detour as well so I'm pleased about that.

Easily done!

 

Top people to deal with as well.

Well, you were absolutely right. Top blokes in there, very knowledgeable & helpful.
I think i must have tried on most of the harnesses in there & Chris's advice was brilliant.

I ended up coming away with the Arbpro access 3.0 (& few other useful/shiney bits and pieces).

Looks like I need to be spending again soon though, now my 200T has decided to stop working
