Mystery Used Part competition

1st Choice Spares Mystery Used Part Competition Winner Announced

Tuesday 6th May 2014 Graham Ashworth of Oldham in Greater Manchester has won the competition. He was first out of the hat with the correct answer: Wiper Motor. Graham said on hearing the news:

After hearing the news about the win, I was over moon and could not have won a better prize!

Graham has won a pretty appropriate prize considering his interests:

• He has been hooked on the World Rally Championship after seeing Colin McRae and Richard Burns live.

• He has been going to the WRC (on and off) for over 20 years. • His favourite car is a WRC Subaru Impreza.

• His favourite TV show is Top Gear [Did he know the answer to the Viking Funeral clue below?].

So congratulations to Graham, and thank you to all of you that entered. We are going to announce the next competition soon so check back in for details. Oh, and the picture clue is still on the site here: Easy,

Help for entries:

To enter this competition, participants must submit their entry via our Facebook page:

To help you the image can be found on our website. Once you know the make and model you can quickly check out its associated parts pages. The clue to finding the make and model is: It is a reasonably priced car. It was the rebadged South Korean car that was given a ‘Viking Burial’ on a popular TV motoring show in 2010. A pity it wasn’t broken for parts – you could have had a cheap replacement wiper motor, heater blower motor, throttle body, car door lock mechanism, or alternator.

The winner shall be notified by 12th May, 2014 in Great Britain.
