Default Roof Suppliers/Member Discounts

I bought my much loved 2003 s2000 in September 2012, personal situation has changed since then and I now find myself looking after the car on my own (single, white female)and I'm looking at quotes for a replacement mohair roof. Am also considering joining as a member.

Just a couple of questions:- Are member discounts available from suppliers, although I live in MK does anyone recommend a supplier for the roof and a fitter in the Bedford area?

Hope its Ok to ask these questions, although I'm currently a non member.

Many thanks

Lorraine

Welcome to the forums! Typically most people give Jack Smith's in Swansea a call. £280 all in for a brand spanking new roof. Most other places are easily in the £600 - £900 area. Have a search through the forums for Jack Smith

I had mine replaced at Monsoon Car Hoods, near Eastbourne on the south cost, last week.

£662 for the OEM vinyl with a new glass a window.

More than Jack Smith in Swansea but the difference is less by the time you factor in the additional miles and possible overnight stay - depends how far you have to travel.

£50 for a night stop over
£30 food
£300 of fuel?

The quality would have to be night and day better...
Or you live a VERY long way away...

I know it's an old/tired argument here, but it bears repeating sometimes

Slightly closer for you is Carhood Warehouse just off the A3 in Surrey. They have the vinyl on special this week. £595 less 10% I recall.

One mans penny is another mans pound.

I'm having a new mohair roof fitted at http://www.thesofttopshop.com/honda-s2000.

I want a perfect job and can't be bothered traveling.

True - but I would have needed to buy a glass rear window to exchange at J Smiths - anywhere from £100-£150.
