Throttle Cable - Dealer stocked item?

So my throttle cable politely decided to snap turning into my street this afternoon. Had enough momentum to roll down the street and clutch up the driveway, but that's where the car sits now.

Anyone know if this is something that a dealer should stock on the shelf? (namely Doncaster BM) so I can waltz in Saturday morning and get this **** sorted or is there somewhere else I can get one over this long weekend....

Cheers
Jack

Happened all of about 20 minutes ago, but that's my plan B if the dealer doesn't have one.
Should have gotten a 330 and not had this problem to start with....

Surly you could just use the throttle cable off your lawn mower.

Was thinking about using the laces off my knee-high boots?

Now your talking. That's hot. You'll have to wait until after your show tonight though.
It could be time to s54 that bitch.

I can't make my show tonight now that the car is undrivable, catch 22.
Now I can't make rent or feed my meth habit.

Will see what is easier to find re. S54 vs Throttle cable.

Pretty sure dealers stock S54's, don't know about throttle cables though..
