Question Anyone have experience ordering from HeinBrand in Germany

Can anyone share experience ordering parts from them. They seem to only accept Euro wire for payment (anything over 300 EU) which is a major pain from the USA.

Just wanted to check others experiences before i go to the trouble of wiring payment to Germany for a few parts.

Appreciate any feedback from anyone in US who has ordered from them.

Thanks!

Current: 1971 US GTV 1750 - Undergoing restoration 1967 US Giulia Ti 1600
Long ago gone: 1974 Berlina 2000 (RHD) - AUS - my much loved college car.

I prefer working with Christian Ondrak at Ok Parts and Engineering in Germany as very user friendly. HeinBrand has good offerings, but not as easy to work with.
This is only my opinion from my own experiences.

I have ordered from HeinBrand and did not have any problems. I prefer to buy parts in the US but, many parts are not available and you have to order from overseas and sometimes deal with US Customs.

Hein has had several things no one else offered. I don’t recall the limit to Euro wire. I bought from him using a simple credit card, I think.

Never a problem with his product or service.

Past Alfas...
59 102 Touring (first Alfa $500 running)
65 Sprint GT (2nd Alfa, $500 daily driver)
102 Sprint (never did anything with it, but wish I had)
74 Berlina (first new car - now certainly rusted into oblivion)
61 Giulietta Spider G-Prod Race Car (where is it now?)
84 Spider Veloce (rarely drove it, so sold it)
86 Quadrifoglio (Dull car - no more 115s for me)
1971 Montreal "The Full Monty". Fair winds and following seas

Current Alfas
59 102 Touring Roadster - restoration complete, enough Alfa for any rational man. Or irrational, for that matter
Oops. Add to the "present" list, 10204 01488, 2000 Touring Roadster project

And past...
Two 1946 Stampe SV4C (c/n 294 "Rocinante" - wife's favorite airplane. RIP), and c/n 235 "La Bon Temps Femme" (gone to a new home, but never forgotten)
Zlin 50LA (+9 -6 gees, titanium spar, 1200 lbs, 260HP rumored to now be in Brazil)

Starduster Too (recently spotted at the Nevada City, CA airport - over 20 years and an entire continent separating it from our stewardship in Binghamton, NY)
1955 Cessna 170B (wife taught me to fly tailwheel in this)

And present...
64 Mooney M20E ("Rambo". My faithful steed for over 40 years) Over 55 years old, and just returned from a trip to Argentina in him
Newest in the fleet
1967 Piper Super Cub on Wipline amphibious floats (a true "all terrain vehicle")
2010 Triumph Thunderbird


You can snap roll an Alfa only one time...

Thanks folks and yes they have something no-one else seems to have and it is NOS, though that seems to be a loose term these days. Anyway, since i can't find it anywhere else will have to deal with the visit to the bank (when it is not so hot). Appreciate the input.

I do not like bank wire transfers but, it beats not having parts to fix your car. I purchased parts for a 507 BMW using a bank wire transfer and thought about sending cash in the mail but, that is not legal and could become problems for me in the future. I guess that is a problem when you have an old car.
