    Not come across this before.

    Tried to order a set of spark plug leads the other day from Summit in the US, worked out cheaper even with all the taxes, but when I got to the check out bit it would not let me finish the transaction. I emailed Summit to find out what was wrong thinking it might be covid related, it wasn't!
    The reply from Summit was " the policy from NGK said we cannot sell their parts outside the US".
    Obviously not the fault of Summit but very unusual, has anyone else come across similar and are there any ways around it other than a trip to the US?

    Yep, that's why I use JEGS, summit also used to automatically add $30 to all export orders......another reason I don't use them.

    Have you tried Rock Auto.

    They seem to be quite reasonable and sometimes their clearance lines are brilliant value.

    Cheers,

    Seems a reciprocal agreement with any US members would be useful. Birthday presents back and forth of course....

    I ordered some bits and pieces from Finishline a month ago now.
    No sign of it yet.
    I did send a chasing email yesterday.
    Hopefully not a similar issue?

    Rock Auto can be really good value, BUT watch out for multiple items from multiple warehouses causing the shipping to become very expensive.

    I have a rather large blue box with NGK across the front sitting on the sofa. Not bad at all, 4 days California to High Wycombe, no extra charges. Thank you to Rockauto and Tony for letting me know about them.

    Graham.
