A big welcome to Lorcan and his colleagues from ACS UK. If you don't know about ACS you've probably visited this forum by mistake!!

Please do keep an eye on their shop here on the Forum and look out for news, products, offers etc.

Thank you all :D

Well, where do I start? Our website is http://www.ac-schnitzer.co.uk, and it's a cut-down version of http://www.ac-schnitzer.de which has millions (nearly) of pages. You'll need to use both to find stuff relevant to a particular car but one thing you won't find on either is a price list. There are a couple of reasons for this.

1) It's bloody confusing (and I'm used to looking at it)
2) It has combined prices for wheel/tyre sets. Depending on the value of the Euro I have to say that most of the time we get a better deal on tyres by sourcing them in the UK. We get very good deals on tyres from Michelin - try us next time you need tyres, we can often beat the likes of Camskill - so that makes these sets look overly expensive, and they are expensive enough anyway
3) We can often haggle with Germany to get a better deal, especially if you can combine several items into a package, or get together and organise a group buy.

So, long story short, for the best prices on AC Schnitzer give me a bell on 01485 542000 or email me lorcan "at" ac-schnitzer.co.uk and I'll do my best for you. Feel free to call me for technical advice too, if you've seen some wheels on ebay and wonder if they'll fit etc., I don't bite (not hard anyway).

Finally, it's worth noting that AC Schnitzer take a global view of the market place, and that mostly means the growth economies like India and China. So don't be surprised to see some bonkers carbon wings etc on the websites. They may not be to our taste (with occasional exceptions) but some countries love 'em. In a similar vein don't be surprised to hear the immortal line "no longer available" if you are enquiring about E30/36/38/39 and even E46 stuff. ACS concentrate on current models so when the old stuff is gone, it's gone. If you are into the older models it's often worth snapping up stuff before it gets deleted as it can be a nightmare to source replacements further down the line.

Cheers

Lorcan
