This is my message to paynes about that I will be buying the mist jets from Allen ford instead (courtesy of Lenny)

I'm very sorry to inform you that I won't be purchasing this genuine ford part or any parts from you in the future,

As a consumer it is my right to search for a quality part at a quality price and one would assume that any reputable ford dealer could easily provide that to their customer,

however if you take a moment to search on eBay for item 120845679668 you will find that a fellow Registered UK ford dealership can still supply the finis 1708797 ford heated mist type jets for the original price of £2.89 each

It makes it very difficult for me to buy the finis 1708797 from you or to even buy your story about ford hiking the price on this item,

Thank you for your time and perhaps to the best of your knowledge ford have put the price up
But I have one last question
Should I buy more than two of these for myself and resale purposes now that they are allegedly going so cheap?


And this is their reply to me this morning


Hello, I am very sorry that you think this is a story. my self and Micky reply to messages over the weekend and try to give the information customers need and this is in our own time we dont get paid for this.its very simple ford have a recomended retail price and a cost price to the dealer we inturn offer a very fair discount and service on our genuine ford products.we will not get into a price war its upto you where you buy you vehicle parts from we can only offer advice if you have problems with your vehicle and give you the best price on parts that we can offer . i have checked this listing number and yes you are correct they are still selling them at the price we sold them at . If i am to offer you any advice i would say go and buy them from Allen Ford in coventry and then if you have a bit of spare time just phone a few ford dealers and ask them how much this part number is 1708797 then you will find that this is not a story we are being very honest with you. If you are till unhappy with my reply and want to talk to me then you can give me a call on 07918625812 Russell

BOOM BOOM

I'm overall happy with this mod (not £15 happy mind - glad i got them at £3 each). They don't look like they get the full screen, but i think its cause the mist is so thin. Not had a problem with them not moving any muck.

There s a bit of run off onto the bonnet, but thats the same with the old jet ones too.

No issues of the roof or sides getting wet either.

WOW!
I thought "That's not nice, slagging off Payne's" I've bought stuff from them before and I was happy with the price.
Anyway, before I spoke here, I thought I'd do some research.
Digging out my receipt for 20 liters of ford 5W/30 synthetic oil and checking that it only cost £57.60 delivered, I went onto Ebay.

:o Shock-horror! They now ask £86.71 for it !!!!!!

Just a shame that the stealers have sussed it out and bumped up the price.
Don't know why they didn't just fit them as standard from the start.
