I'm new to MINIs, but so far outmotoring.com has been my go-to source. Aaron has been more then helpful on several occasions. I'll continue to give him my business and would recommend anyone do the same.
Without a doubt, Out Motoring is the best aftermarket retailer I've worked with. I came in to buy some small parts. I mentioned that I needed a few of the nutcerts for my Mini. One part that I needed had to be shipped to me. When it arrived they had included the nutcerts.
This Christmas they worked with my father to get my new DDM air intake to me by Christmas, despite it being back ordered most places.
Today I ordered a few more parts I needed before taking my Mini into the shop. They were shipped out within 6 hours of placing the order.
Out Motoring is my go to shop.
In this "internet age" we find ourselves searching for the best price we can find. All the while not thinking about the "value" of customer service. Is an extra dollar or two in your pocket worth bad service? The answer is no!
While Out Motoring offers competitive pricing, the one thing no other on-line vendor can provide is the amazing and excellent customer service provided by the Out Motoring Team.
Their responsiveness, professionalism, knowledge and ability to accommodate a customers needs are world class and second to none!
Good service DOES have "value" and it's worth paying for! So my advice is before you waste time trying to find a better price elsewhere think about what it might cost you in the long run should you encounter a problem.
It's better to do business with a company like Out Motoring which is professional, customer focused AND offers competitive pricing.
Out Motoring has set the benchmark for all other on-line retailers who have forgotten the meaning of customer service.
Advantages: Convenience, easy to navigate parts finder, superior customer service.
Disadvantages: I wish there was a bigger variety of OEM accessories (but not a deterrent for doing business).
