That is not the case on the 2nd hand market though, if it came off an ATR, it is priced at least twice of the equivalent part off another model. The foglights are a prime example of this. They are shared with certain of the 6G models, but ATR ones are for sale/sell for twice the price.

Take the ATR armrest, it was a dealer option that not many people took. They are as rare as rocking horse s****. When they come up on ebay, they go for near on £100. An identical 6G armrest, but with a cloth top instead of an alcantara top, goes for £50 or less.

The clip on my armrest is broken. Now as ATR armrests are extremely rare, there is no way i could by a clip for it and anyone selling an armrest wouldn't be prepared to sell me just the clip when they can command £100 for the whole unit.

This is the part - http://www.hondaorig...2&block_03=2673

If then google http://bit.ly/M2PQYe i can see the part was also fitted to the 5G's.

5G's came with armrests as standard so there is no demand for them. All i now need to do is find any 5G at a breakers and get an armrest clip for next to nothing.

Failing that, i can call into Fishyfannies Honda and ask for the clip. When they put in my reg no and say "sorry mate, Honda don't make armrests for the ATR any more", i can confirm that the clip is common across the whole range of 5G and 6G Accords and give them the part number. :D

This is all made possible by knowing the part number. B)

Phone Lings by all means but I bet Holdcroft Honda will do the parts cheaper. Make sure you mention Type Accord.

Just sell up and buy a petrol.

As far as I've found by ringing around a few dealers, the prices on Lings are the same everywhere, except HH of course because of the club discount.

Just to say if you add item to your basket it shows the real part number.

Some of the prices of parts at Lings is the same as Holdcroft!

^ Nope, I was more referring to using it as a parts catalogue rather than buying from it, didnt actually see any options to buy parts. Is it expensive?

I'm having trouble using this site although have used it in the past but now after I enter the Reg. # and click on model the page that comes up is literally huge with no info. on it :wacko: .

 

 Has anyone else had or having this problem?

Came across this post whilst trying to find relevant part numbers for driveshafts, so that I can compare prices. Really useful information. I have now finally created an account here so that I could thank you! When I learn what a rep point is, I will probably award one to you!

 

Cheers,
