    Haven't heard anything bad about either to be honest mate. I think Autotech is more commonly used though (I stand by to be corrected on this)

    yep. autotech seems to be the most popular.

    Dont think there's alot of difference in any of them.

    The Autotech option is the internals and you fit them yourself and they are £290 delivered at the moment.

    The APR option is a ready built and tested unit so just a swap over, the only downside is that they are £650 ish.

    If the internals are fitted correctly then there should be no issues at all.

    Just pulling your leg mate. The HPFP can increase wear on the CF. But as long as you check it every 5000 miles (5 min job). You'll be fine :)
