Hi. Not sure if its a mistake - all the offers on the Euro Car Parts are lower when you select them than they are advertised on the homepage. For example:

Gazebo Party Tent - 2.9 x 2.9mtr (Fully Open) = £15.99 (listed on homepage as reduced to £29.99)
eurocarparts.com/ecp…055

Gazebo Party Tent - 6 x 3mtr (Single Opening) = £34.99 (listed on homepage as reduced to £64.99)
eurocarparts.com/ecp…055

Gazebo Party Tent - 6 x 3mtr (Fully Closed) = £43.99 (listed on homepage as reduced to £79.99)
eurocarparts.com/ecp…055

Intex Easyset Round Swimming Pool (large) - 4.57mtr x 107cm high = £129.99 (listed on homepage as reduced to £184.99)
eurocarparts.com/ecp…055

Intex Prism Frame - Premium Round Swimming Pool (xtra large) 5.49mtr x 122cm high = £299.99 (listed on homepage as reduced to £449.99)
eurocarparts.com/ecp…055

Got myself a cheap gazebo for weekend BBQ

Damnit, ordered some car parts yesterday with the 30% code, grrrr


I wouldn't feel too bad - I noticed they seemed to have inflated their prices compared to other online outlets (I compared a clutch kit on Euro Car Parts with the same on Car Parts 4 Less). Therefore, when you apply discount their pricing falls back in line with competitors - obviously a sales tactic, but makes you jump at the offer

Do you mean this? Only applicable to car parts, excludes all else.31699143-sn9rc.jpg

Pretty sure that EuroCrapParts and Car Parts for less are the same company.

Yes, you are correct they are one and the same.
Given that all they sell is garbage, why would anyone care?
Not liking those RRP prices. Very inflated.

They do indeed. However, the price is the same as day before.

What's annoying is looking at the annual trend, the exact same car servicing parts have increased 20%... damn brexit!

they sell crap and OEM
brilliant thankyou
Gazebo looks fair for the price
They inflate their prices massively and then you come along and take a massive 36% off the price and think you've got a bargain.

£70 for oil on their site where it's £38 everywhere else, and always is.
they think everyone's stupid. and the best thing is a lot of people are.

What's hahahaha mid month sale 36% off car parts and on top its Gazebo Party Tent
Anyone have one of these? Whats the quality like? Shame there wasnt a enclosed 3x3 on offer.
prices over inflated on euro car parts - 1 wiper blade for my car is £5.67 on this site
car parts 4 less all 3 wipers came to £5.77 delivered free within 3-4 days
and they are the same item codes on each site which was shocking
The Gazebo doesn't appear to be a pop up one unless I'm mistaken? This makes erection (cue the memes) and taking down a bit more of a pain. I guess you get what you pay for...
And don't forget to do quick code search when using carparts 4less, usually 10-12% - more around bank hols etc

VCloud3265 - for 14% off a £10+ spend 'on items included in promotion'

I've always assumed Euro car parts' sister company can charge less because they're online-only?
Personally I would only buy from Euro CP to make it easier for me to return (to store)
Typical Gazebo prices to be fair.

Same company!
How people can visit CP4L/ECP websites and not realise they are the same company, is a little bit beyond me...

I thought car parts for less were owned by euro car parts anyway?

Yes, guilty. They are crap and the poles are joined with plastic joints that are next to useless in any wind conditions. That said its only £15 and easy to erect (hehe) and dismantle. If you are going to use it outside (just in case you don't have a large enough room to put it up indoors) i'd advise putting it up and then to tie it off to something secure i.e. a tree branch on each side to help brace the frame from ANY wind. The ground pegs are pretty useless on their own and finally do not connect the rope to the eyelits on the plastic cover do it to the poles.

Also if it rains, make sure you keep an eye on any being trapped on the canopy as it will rip the little velcro straps that secure the canopy to the poles.

Saying all that why the hell did i even bother getting one.
