Extra fast delivery and super service.
However lifters are not really chrome finish, more of a brushed look. Very easy to fit but german translated instructions confusing and good for a laugh!
Lifters creaked on installation, made bonnet sound like a haunted mansion door! Loobed with WD and LM grease and now silent after 2 days.
Action is quite good and well balanced with lifters slowing as they approach max opening position but a liittle fast compared to my A4 factory lifters. When fully open they tend to give a little at the mid point as if they would collapse if pushed a fairly hard and bonnet mountings flex.
Wiring harness had to be pulled away from engine bay weakening mounting clips making them a loose fit in the lower lifter mounting brackets.
Overall good buy especially considering price compared to mazda but unsure of longevity.
