Hello and a warm welcome to Advantage Auto Parts! We specialise in brake calipers, discs & pads, and wheel bearings kits. We are immensely proud to share that we have one of the biggest ranges of brake calipers, discs & pads and wheel bearings in Europe, fully stocked in our warehouses, ready to be dispatched.

We engage experienced engineers who have had long standing careers with well known car manufacturers in developing quality products, and over time we have slowly built up our parts to cover a large range of passenger and light commercial vehicles. Given that we stock the items ourselves means that you will receive your parts very quickly (mostly next day). Finally and most importantly, Advantage is run by a friendly close nit team who ensure that the wheels run smoothly (pun intended!). Our ambition is to continue servicing our customers as best we can and growing our team of friendly faces to maintain our quality standards.
