I have no idea what fool designed GSF's website, but it is a true abberation. I gave up using them because of it.

Anyway, http://www.aepdirect.com are pretty good too..

Thats a good site except their car selector drop down doesn't work.

I agree about GSF. I used to like them and I'll still go to their local depot but I gave up using their website when you had to register just to see their catalogue. They must have lost loads of private sales.

Weird, it works for me, I just ordered a pair of springs for my 2.0HDi!

My nearest GSF is 15 miles away and never has anywhere near to park there, which is a shame really. For me, it's easier just to use AEP now. I've had loads of Citroen bits from them, never had a problem.

I use them but they also have another site carparts4less which is virtually identical but cheaper bizarrely.

Last few times I've used them, they have cheap or OEM quality, but they ain't cheap anymore when you're getting the good gear.

Saying that though, they are when they have a promo on.

On a separate note, these seem quite cheap for QH drop links
