    Almost £35 for a 4 pin (green) dual temperaure sender......is this right ?

    I've been quoted almost £35 for a genuine Four pin (green) dual temperaure sender surely this isnt correct, my genuine stat was cheaper.

    regards

    Have you tried Euro CP or GSF?
    I got my last one from here for under £8, checked it with vcds and it reads spot on:

    i think my £6 ebay one has failed it lasted above 6months. Just ordered a genuine one @ twice the price but still i would rather pay that then have to change the stat again.
