A pair of 2023 brake calipers from an eBay breakers (never had a bad part from them).  The car had done very few miles before its lady owner* stacked it.  I'll fit a new seal kit and keep them as spares given the propensity of them to stick.  The hoses are perfect too.

*if you look at their other listings from that car, like the tailgate, there is a big clue stuck to the back window!

BB Autos on ebay.  Not necessarily cheapest but the gen3 wheels and coil packs I had from them were also very good and came next day.  The gen4 stuff is mislisted as SZ5 (being 2023, it was an LCV).

I have bought a few things from BB Autos, wheels, some items of trim and a 4WD switch box. I have found them to be good.

5 Showa Garage rims.

Yes, very similar to the original steels, but that was intended.

Step 1 in making a car faster. Make it stop. Hard.

 

These should take care of that.
