Hi all, looking for some recommendations regarding A/C condensers, they seem to vary in price quite a bit. Does anyone know the OEM. Thanks

GMG sounds good, is a dryer something i need to know about, and did you get your o rings from OPC?

I'm still on my original dryer at 136k miles and 20 years. Aircon is still ice cold.

Hopefully everyone is applying Dinitrol or ACF50 once they've fitted new condensers & / or Rads?

Do you use that stuff on Aluminium? Thought it was a rust preventer?

Just bought some from the bay.

They are made in Turkey, look ok no worse than the Hella ones that I returned to Design911, those Hella ones were made in Cambodia.

My thought was 2 year guarantee on cheap ones, or 2 year guarantee on Hella ones.

Will see if they fit, original ones lasted 14 years, hope these last at least 5 years.

Will keep you posted.[/img]

Just bought the 6 "O" rings that I need from Porsche Brooklands, thanks to the guys there, still served me even though they were in the middle of a stock take.
Late on a Friday afternoon at a stressy time customer comes first, respect to them.

These parts are more expensive than gold, weight for weight. Why are these o rings so expensive? £25.27

There must be a way of buying direct from the manufacturer.
