Shortage of spare parts
#1
My dark blue XTR suffered damage (not serious and still safely driveable) to both front wings just before Christmas. 

It's an insurance job, however the approved repairers have been waiting for a new front bumper for the last 2 weeks. Rang them today for an update as to when they can start the repairs, and was told that the bumper is on back order and that they will not be able to get one until early February   Angry

Right now it seems like there are supply problems for just about everything!

Some of it is down to manufacturing issues, but a lot are items that have been manufactured, but take ages to import, and get through customs. Even when they clear customs, they can sit at port for weeks due to shortage of delivery drivers.

My daughter’s house build was held up for nearly a year due to shortage of plasterboard. It’s just crazy right now!

Well the car went into the repairers a week ago today. Ringing today to check progress I am advised that it needs a new headlight, and guess what, they are out of stock and they have no idea when the order will be filled.

Going to the Loire Valley in a couple of weeks - will be annoying if we have to do that in the wife's Fiat 500!

Infuriating! Maybe you could find a headlight on EBay, so some such website?

Coincidentally, we are also a Berlingo + Fiat 500 household!

Well good news - the Berlingo is back, all fully repaired so trip to the Loire Valley will be in comfort, and with plenty of space for wine purchases.
