No to Jack Ma. My second least favorite guy named Jack. IM me and I'll Twitter you back who.....Dang, just gave it away.

Yes to some banger & mash eater in the UK. There seem to be Opel and Vauxhall both available

You may find many parts available on the German and other European EBays, but stick to the Brits. You will encounter some insane shipping and fees from the continent, but not the UK. I've gotten an alternator, springs/struts in 7-12 days, smaller parts from 4-8 days usually.
Thanks. I went with the Lithuanian dude. Same grille he sells on the English site but it is going to cost me 10 USD less and will be here well before Palm Sunday. I will see what I get for under a hundred bucks.
