Excellent delivery etc

I'm not in a position to review the item yet as we haven't been to the boat to replace the old one.
But, I can say the delivery was excellent and also the packaging.

I appear to have ordered the wrong switch.

Having looked again at the existing switch I now realise that the correct ignition switch for my boat would have been a three position switch with a push choke option. It would be a great favour if I could exchange switches to the correct one, however , I accept that it was my error in ordering the wrong swhtch.


Hi, Sadly we do not stock the type of switch you required and therefore were unable to offer an exchange. We, of course, will refund in full any goods no longer required within 30 days of delivery.

It feels like a well made item, and fits in my 1963 Beetle perfectly.
Simple enough to wire up with clear labels on the side and the spade terminals are all the standard 6.3mm size.

I'm very happy with it, and it's a lot cheaper than similar ones from VW parts specialists.

Great well made easy to fit

This product is also fairly small in depth and width so it's good if you have limited room to mount your key. Simple to fit and everything is marked up so wiring is simple too
