    Guys, my boot has a habit of closing on my head as it appears that the gas struts are a little but worn/tired. I'm going to replace these but before i hit the Buy It Now button on an ebay auction for £38.90 can anyone else recommend anywhere that may be able to provide these at a better price?

    Cheers

    look like a better option, would really like some an inch or two longer.

    Cheers for the link Nessy, unfortunately I got pissed off last night when the boot closed on my head 3 times in a row and ended up ordering the UK made ones that I posted the link for.

    Sorry Auroan, totally forgot you were breaking and avant, could have saved me a few quid :-( How is the rear washer/wiper motor on that one? I'm going to be replacing mine as its clogged up and the blade doesnt complete a full sweep all the time.

    Any ideas where to get new gas struts for the saloon, as mine are really weak now and dont open the boot fully. Its a really pain when it drops down whilst your trying to squeeze a pushchair through the gap.

    for the saloon id check the hinges first they could be stiff, even though i put wd40 on it while on the car. i will be taking mine off soon to really work it in there. just a thought
