Stick to Lemforder or Meyle but they are not cheap. Beg borrow or steal but don't fit cheap arms or you'll be doing it all again inside of 6 months. iirc the Meyle arm kit is about £360

I got mine from All German Parts in Leeds and I heartily recommend them. Great bunch of guys with top customer service. £382 delivered for my set.

I contemplated the cheap ebay **** from China as well (as £380 is a lot of money for something you never see) but having seen the 2 kits side by side now I wouldn't hesitate to go for the Meyle ones. The 100 quid ebay stuff looks like something a kid has made in comparison. Very inferior. Look like you could snap them by hand!

Having had the stuff fitted now (along with new shocks and springs) the handling of the car is 100% better. Well worth the money IMHO.
