    I have just ordered some similar ones that cost 28 quid a pair inc postage. Not sure if they were 'lifetime guarentee'. As been said I can't see it being worth much. I emailed the supplier a while back asking why they were so cheap. Basically they make them themselves. They still have to meet certain standards tho. I would imagine that they wear out quicker than OE ones perhaps. I personally think they're worth a punt. The ones from dealer are 70 each, the OE ones on ebay are 40 each I haven't heard from anyone who has had the cheapo ones on long term....don't think they've been going that long. A few people have posted that they have them on, but only for a few months...it will be interesting to see how long they last.

    I had a few emails back from them.

    Like said its not worth a great deal.

    If the bush 'wears out' then it hasnt failed. If the bush falls out the arm bends etc then they will cover it.

    got these now, not got round to putting them on. They seem ok, quite crudely finished tho, like rough edges, lumpy welds. The working parts and bushes seem ok tho. I'll put em on and see how they go.
