Had notification that it might be delivered today which will be 2 weeks. Did you get charged import duties? Either way it will still be a good deal if it all works!!!

I can't honestly remember, so that means either I didn't or it was a small amount that wasn't worth mentioning

Well it has arrived!! All delivered by FedEx in just over 2 weeks. A pretty good service I'd say..... I did have to pay import duty and vat totaling about £80. I did wonder if I'd asked them the record it as a gift it would have arrived duty free? Anyway its here and all looks as Mark said of good quality! Unfortunately as we have a busy weekend this week, fitting is going to be delayed!

Same style packaging as mine. I checked over every cable, just to make sure there was no damage and connectors were in good order.
I needn't of worried.
Good luck with the fitting.
Before you refit all the interior panels and route the cables properly, power it up and trial run it. Would be heartbreaking to fit it 100% and find it doesn't work. I had cables draped everywhere across the boot area. To test. Then routed each cable and retested. This way I'd know where the fault lay. Took a bit longer but in my mind worth it

Thanks for the tips Mark, yes that sounds like a good idea to make sure all is working first. I think I'll be doing the same! Did you just fit as per pdf instructions or did you find any video help?

I just used the PDF instructions. Hard part was getting my head round pulling all the trim off the rear of my car

Definitely following this with a view to buy... Could I ask which kit you ordered, there are a number of options on the site... power tailgate lift kit, automatic tailgate lift, aftermarket power tailgate lift etc.
kind regards & thanks!

It's done! 4 hours and a test before running all the wires. The initial test was the easy part...... running all the wires was a lot more tricky but very happy with the end result! Not fitted the gesture sensor yet as the instructions seemed to be a bit basic even by chinglish standards!!
