I ordered the wrong stuff
« on: August 03, 2017, 06:21:30 PM »
So I goofed up and ordered 7.5 inch green stuff brake pads. Mine are the 8.4 inch. Mike from minisports USA even helped to save me with my wheel bearings. I ordered my parts from minisport USA thinking they were coming from him. They were instead coming from the U.K.  He sent me the parts I needed and I will send him my order d ones when they come in. In the meantime I have a brand new set of green stuff 7.5 inch pads for sale or trade.

That's a common mistake - thinking MiniSport USA is actually shipping from the USA that is - Mike does keep some odds and ends at his place in Florida, but almost everything comes from the UK offices.

They recently introduced a new, cheaper form of shipping - the slow way I guess.

I still find MiniSpares to be less expensive overall and I get parts really quickly, so I'm a fan.

I've got 8.4's on my Mini too or I'd buy them from you........

I'll buy them off you since I'm about to buy a couple pair of 7.5 pads anyways.  Shoot me a message and I'll shoot you some money over paypal.
