    Hey all,

    Repco has just released an updated website and have implemented Click & Collect.

    What do you think?

    Have you selected the correct engine?

    I just had a look and the VE SSV Manual is an option when selecting the L98 engine

    Yes I have them currently was sold on all sorts of reasons. I disapprove, weaker than halogen, nice light to look at but not as good overall as proper HIDs in the projectors.
    Also get really hot and I think sort of defeats low energy / efficient principle. I’d take them back if I could. Sell you mine half price?

    That's a step in the right direction!

    Still can't believe how weak some of these companies are in the area of e-commerce. It's something that should've been well sorted by 10 years ago. The share price drop and extreme decrease in profit of Harvey Norman circa 2010 reflect both their weakness in e-commerce and poor decision to acquire Clive Peters stores. They picked up their game in subsequent years and profitability was somewhat restored. Still, the growth of the company had been severely damaged as a result of poor business decisions.

    The big players that stay abreast of technology and market trends will generally always win.

    Wasn't the L77 motor only used in automatic vehicles from the factory?

    Not according to my build plate.

    As far as I am aware, L76 with AFM was auto only.

    Thanks for your offer, but based on your review I think I will allow it to pass.

    I hardly shop at Repco anymore since most parts are cheaper on eBay for the same or better item. I did appreciate the thread though, it made me think to have a sticky at the latest specials catalogue. Only one thing worth getting which was the brake cleaner at 4 cans for 10 bucks. But glad OP posted because I looked in my shed last night and i was down to half a can. So i grabbed 4 cans today. Love brake cleaner, works so much better than degreaser and no hosing it down. I also signed up as a member even though I have RACT. Bloke reckoned they send out emails about special member only deals.

    I could not get the website to accept my Repco VIP number or NRMA for the 30% off on the weekend. I assume some parts of the website are yet to be "wired up". But yes, finally they did it. And its about time.

    It was an auto-club offer (RACV, NRMA etc.), not a VIP club offer. It was advertised quite heavily on TV over the weekend
