Default Re: LeBaron Bonney vs Cartouche

Many times I have bought from both. La Barron Bonney always comes out on top every time. This last time around, after I had bought a new top for my '30 Phaeton from La Barron Bonney, I was very pleased with it on all points. I thought that side curtains would be the finishing touch to the car. Pricing the side curtains, LarBarron Bonney was about $700 and Car Touche was about $500. Wanting to save the $200 difference was a big mistake. Car Touche used a lesser grade material, and they had incorrect instructions about the curtain fasteners. The aggravation of lesser quality, poor fit of the rear quarter curtain, and wrong directions from Car Touche, was more of an added loss to me than a saving. I will know better the next time around. I will go with La Barron Bonney. I recommend that you do the same.
