About the employer
Established in 1980 and still independent, we at Kingfisher have with dealt air-cooled VW parts all our 37 years, so our knowledge is self explanatory.
At the helm over all this time is Dave Fisher, who along with his long serving staff will assist and advise you in all VW air-cooled matters.
We also have a large workshop where we service, repair, MOT, restore and race prepare only air-cooled VW's. This gives us a product fitment knowledge second to none, we fit the parts we sell - a unique claim in the VW scene.
The air-cooled scene has witnessed many changes since Kingfisher started with the demise of all the major air-cooled suppliers. The fact that we are the only survivors speaks volumes for our loyal customers and knowledgeable staff.
