    I am pretty close to buying a 2007 MG Breva 1100. As there are no MG dealers in Atlantic Canada, I will be pretty much on my own for service and maintenance. I am OK with that as I have maintained all my bikes in my 30+ years of riding. However I will undoubtedly need some parts at some point - is there a good online MG parts source in Canada? I know there is a few in States, but shipping costs are often more than the parts themselves.

    Seacoast in New Hampshire (USA) is probably your closest dealer. They seem to have good inventory and a phone call should get you what you want without high shipping cost.

    I get big stuff right here, and small stuff at gutsibits in the UK. there are no Canadian sources that I've ever been able to find.

    shipping just... is what it is. both sources will deal with you fairly and charge reasonable rates. shipping from the UK is generally much easier and cheaper than from the US, no clue why.

    I buy all my parts from Corsa Meccanica in Concord Ontario. They're reliable and knowledgeable.

    Thanks Tobin, higher volume stores get far more favorable rates. I suspect with BREXIT for the UK, costs might waver.

    I'm sure, but it's something I've experienced across many years and industries and businesses. I think the UK royal mail and the Canadian post just kinda... get on better together? or something?

    actually, you're about the only american business I'll deal with, because the service and products you offer are extraordinary. the difference is that great, I definitely avoid having anything shipped from the US.
