    The photos of those two straps on eBay look identical to me.

    I'll take one off and see about making some up myself.
    Blimey looks like I was lucky then, my two from David Manners back in Feb this year were £13.02 plus vat for each side.
    The pair including new bolts and washers, pin hinges and delivery was £48.74 all in.

    I wasn't too happy when I got the email. I've seen on another forum someone else had the same issue and that was back in May.
    They're still on their website at £13. Not good enough really.

    Hmmmm. I thought that there was something in trading standards saying if something is advertised at that price they have to sell it at that price. Like when stuff is wrongly priced in supermarkets e.g. they have not removed the old price label on the shelf. Just thinking ????

    Unfortunately not. If the order has not been dispatched they can cancel the order.
    They should have amended the price on the website though.
    They've now lost a customer but I doubt that they'll be bothered.

    Had another email today from Dave Manners to say that they will be updating their prices on their website in the next few weeks.
    But didn't answer my question as to why the price of the straps had more than doubled in price since February.

    If the spec had been improved fair enough - like galvanised and then painted properly !!

    I've just received this email from Dave Manners.
    Hi Barry,


    Thank you for taking the time to communicate to us with feedback on the current website.

    I have looked at your query and I can see that in February ; C2C2028 and C2C6847, they were approx. £13.00 + VAT from our supplier Jaguar cars Ltd.

    Every month we have price updates from Jaguar. In May there was a price increase but we are unable to update the current website, to reflect these changes or to update on level of stock on particular items. We are changing our website in the coming weeks which is the reason that the current website may be out of date.

    Please accept our sincerest apology for any trouble or inconvenience we have caused you. To ensure the price is the relevant price for you please feel free to call one of our sales team for up-to-date information.

    I do hope to have your custom in the future and that you give us an opportunity in the future to meet your expectations.

    Kind Regards

    Simon

    p.s As a gesture of good will I can offer them to you and the club members for C2C2028 £26.81 + VAT and C2C6847 £33.41+ VAT
