GREAT PRICE, PARTS & SERVICE
A fracture developed on the rear subframe/axle of my wife's 2008 Fiat 500 (A common problem apparently). On closer examination it was also starting to corrode quite badly and as such needed replacement. An internet search sourced a brand new part from IMAxle specialists for £142 delivered which was cheaper than reclaimed used parts being advertised on eBay and in salvage yards.
The online ordering process was simple, communication first class and the part was delivered without a hitch in less than 24hrs!.
The mechanic who carried out the work was impressed with the quality of the part which only required minor tweeking during installation.
Out of interest I contacted my local Fiat dealer where I was quoted £1080.00 for the replacement part alone and I didn’t bother to ask if that included VAT!
Well done IMAxle Specialists and many thanks for your assistance.”
porosity on welds within the bushes area
(located on main support area)
Bent brackets on one side and scuffs on paintwork,
possibly dew to poor care of transportation and splatter has not been cleaned off any of the welds.
As I'm a welder fabricator i must say the overall quality of this part is very poor if i was to present this part to the inspection team within my work place the part would of been handed back to me until it had be completed with a certain standard.
Now if i wasn't up against in in regards to getting my car back on the road this part would have been sent back but instead I've had to take it into work to put it right myself.
I have taken pictures of problem areas on the hopes that when i ring ImAxle up to explain about the situation and ask for a bit of money off the asking price for any inconvenience.

Studs for brake pipes not in correct place
Slotted holes for brake sensors cables not in correct position and to small to fit
