FCP fans ?

Any FCP Euro buyers here.

I've tried doing the leave items in cart - see if they will send me a coupon .....

Is it just me, or I would say in the last 18-24 months, none of my orders I have placed...no coupons. -5-10% off saved is appreciated and it all goes back to them in one shape or another.

Just got 5% off an order. But had to leave it in the cart for over a week, think it was 8 or 9 days. Used to get it after a few days.

You got better patience than I do. After 4 days, I'm going to just check-out, as I'm just trying to cross one more thing off the honey-to-do-list

I hear you. I had time on my side. Was building an extensive parts list for the transmission swap on our E70 diesel and various other parts for our newly acquired F15 (including a trans service kit so I don't have to do that swap in my future ).

I just ordered a thermostat and water pump kit for my e90 from FCP.
Same price as ECS Tuning but with a lifetime warranty. Those die every 60K miles or so and at $420, the warranty may come in handy.
I've noticed a number of online retailers have cut back on coupons, like Harbor Freight.

I just spent $250 at FCP Euro a few minutes ago, could not find any coupons, but all things considered, they were still the best for me in this case.

I really like FCP Euro - even their "spam" regular emails are usually very interesting.

RM European is still sometimes my choice when I need something quickly since I'm in CA and they somehow get it to me overnight with free shipping, vs. the free shipping from FCP Euro takes a week or so.

They sure are. Their new YouTube channel is pretty good too. The guys they have doing them are funny enough but also focused enough to provide very good info for DIY maintenance.

I use FCP for both the Benz and BMW and have been very satisfied. ECS is my back up.

I'm finishing up a timing chain and guide job and a full front suspension replacement after going in for a left front axel and a shredded belt. I feel your pain, and my wallet feels your wallet's pain too.
