Thanks, have you bought from there? I'm always weary of putting my card details into those sorts of sites that don't have PayPal.

Yes I've bought lots from aliexpress (but not those centre caps).

You tend to find all the stuff thats on ebay.co.uk from China at lower prices, but sometimes it takes longer to arrive.

Thanks

Those look exactly like the cheap eBay ones minus the OEM style boxes and free valve caps.

The gumtree ones look better, certainly a better colour, twice the price of the others though!

The colours of the aliexpress don't look right, the grey looks too dark and the silver too shiney for my standard wheels?

Mirror glass, these are heated, concave and have a fully sticky back just like OEM (Does not include the plastic backing part that clips to the motor, this has to be peeled off the old glass and reused).

One of mine has gone open circuit so doesn't demist Sad

The rads have gone up on the eBay link.

I've had to buy a pair for the boxster, here's the cheapest place I could find:

I bought one of those, they are not heated ( they are compliant with heated mirrors due to the sticky back, the heater is of course in the mirror housing), they just stick onto the old glass or carrier. Also being convex. they ping off. I had one fly off, luckily onto a grass verge. So I collected it. In the end use used some silicone sealant to stick it on, now stays on but not heated from the back any more. . Plus points are: very cheap, good fit size wise and also a nice convex shape means wide view. so yes a good find.

Hmm strange as that's what I bought from them and it was heated and with sticky back as stated you need to peel the black backing away from the old glass and element which is sandwiched between the backing and the glass. I'll recheck the link I posted and amend to suit.

Just bought some of these gearbox mount bushes to support the old saggy thing currently in from new. Will report beack when fitted, unless infrasilver beats me to it: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Porsche-996-97-05-Powerflex-Gearbox-Front-Mounting-Bush-Insert-Kit-PFR57-530/142209402045

I'll be very interested in your (and infrasilver's) results, I'm keen to get a set myself if you can get them to work without increased NVH.
Plenty of red rubber grease on installation?
Infrasilver's comment on possibly slightly too thick sidewalls is interesting, maybe modification is required.

Agree Good find Alex, please report back, also I notice they supply most of the other suspension bushes at very good prices Thumb
