    Some of the parts I wanted aren't listed on the UK site so I've emailed them to find out, but the carbon interior parts look mint! And the carbon grill too :)

    OSIR goodies are made in China but the quality is great.

    What do people think of the Mantis gauge pod, and it fitting a 8P the same way it fits in the TT?

    What is a mantis gauge pod? It is a boost pressure gauge? TBH I'd rather keep the vent as it is.

    I have a couple of OSIR stuff installed and the quality is top notch. Their Carbon fiber stuff fitted my A3 to a T! My friend also got the Carbon bonnet and the quality and fit is VERY good! Not your usual flimsy, flying off any minuet ****.

    Their stuff might be good, but I just don't trust them. To me, any company that uses a free personal hosting package for a commercial website is immediately saying "avoid us, we're a bunch of cowboys". That's just the impression that little things like that can give and I'm sure others will disagree, but I won't be using them.

    And I hope they get them moved before 7th July, or they'll soon be out of date:

    That site is the jap main site. The contact in the UK has a proper website and is a registered company as far as I'm aware. As long as you pay by credit card you've got some protection at least.

    I haven't had a reply as yet either chap.

    Yeah it was the TT shop, I wasn't aware of their reputation or otherwise.

    So if the TT shop don't answer, and the Jap site is uncontactable, where can you get hold of this stuff? I really like the carbon interior parts, C-frames and mirror shells.
