I used SGS for new struts for the boot of my BMW 740. After three attempts to get the correct length struts with the correct fittings, they were no better than the worn out originals I sadly had already thrown away. If I had kept them, the new ones would have gone straight back for a refund.

They also keep sending me emails even after the new GDPR rules came into force - their "unsubscribe" link didn't work.

Avoid!

Sorry you’d had a bad experience, doesn’t sound good at all ..

I also bought a pair from SGS in the past for my b3 audi 90q & they weren’t that bad to be fair ..

We put a set of SGS on our Ur about 6 years ago and they're fine.... I also bought a set for one of our kitchen cabinets, they're fine too... Finally, I bought a 3 tonne jack because I absolutely hate jacking cars up, especially with weedy equipment. The 3 tonne jack is just a beast. S2. quattro, Land Rover, I'll jack them all straight off the floor with minimal effort... It's heavy, but brutality effective.
