Excellent service as usual. Dispatched on the day of order, 6 days in total to me in Italy.

I was prepared for a longish mucky job, but the hub was fitted and the car back on the road in about 45 minutes.
An old wood chisel and judicious use of a hammer to remove the outer seal. It's not so difficult. The manual says a 3/4" square drive and socket is required to remove the hub nut, which is very tight at about 150 ft/lbs. But this isn't true. A standard 1/2" square drive is sufficient and a decent length steel bar for leverage. I used a 4' length of steel pipe and the nut came off very easily. Replacement was even easier. Turned out this is probably one of the easiest jobs to do on this car.
