    i bought a second hand AP coilover kit from a well known company which was fitted to a demo car for 2 months .
    they sold it on ebay and cost me £370.00 the probelm i have is it has been fitted to my car a few months and i dont do many miles and one of the rear shock bushes have failed have returned it to them and they say its not under warrenty cause it is second hand but they are looking in to this for me so hopefully will get it sorted.
    they were very helpful on phone but but a wondering what people say

    any advice ?

    yes i thought about that but with the shock being used for under six months from new thought id return it,
    i did ask them if they can just replace the bush and return it to me but to check the whole shock so waiting to here back from them.

    i feel it abit let down as those shocks come with a 2 year warrenty and then to be told no warrenty is abit harse, plus the kit was not advertised with not havinig any warrenty or i would not of bought it
