Kam, I used a guy in Belgium, can't remember the name but I can dig through some emails to find it.
He did both rams, he kept me updated throughout the whole process, with pictures of everything, excellent service and a 5 year warranty as long as they are installed correctly.
My only extra was the tool to remove the rams, you don't need it really tbh.

Thank you, company is DH automotive.

I touch with them and a company in Germany.

Germany upgrade with their own internals with long term warranty.

It depends on what you have done, I can tell you what I paid but prices may have changed and may vary depending on what you need to be done.
This was the written report with total cost:

NO pump parts broken , only oil leaking on the o-rings and cylinders need be refresh.
The 2 rams loses also oil.
The 2 wiper seals (top on the rams) are hard and haze to be changed.
If you want I can send a special tool for this with your mechanism for 15 euro.

Total cost= repair 2 leaking rams= 408 euro; 2 wiper seals= 50 euro; refresh pump cylinders and change O-ring on the pump. 95 euro ;
Total cost= 586 euro vat and shipping cost included; If you want special tool + 15 euro= 601 euro

Seems like I should of looked at this as an option earlier in the year.

One ram failed, porsche changed the lines so I ended up buying complete spoiler kit from porsche, rams, lines, pump for circa £1600.

I didn’t really consider the electric version.

This is the company I went for in the end, 390 euros.

They upgrade all the internals.

Thats probably the problem. They have seized up over time or seals have dried up and caused the malfunction as I could imagine most of its life the car has been sitting still.

I usually put my spoiler up every trip just so its in constant usage.

You maybe right!, seals do dry out. Only mainly lift to dry after washing
