    Often use ECP...was p*ss*d of with GSF when the rocker cover gasket I bought from them was for a non-vanos engine and I asked for a Vanos one....turns out their system had the wrong part number listed for the part.

    Thats not to say they aren't any good but if they managed to f*ck that up then no point me going back there.Never had a problem with ECP though and they're open sundays too which saved me because they had the right rocker cover gasket for me

    Main concern about ECP is they have a lot of stuff which you can't find on their website ie powerflex bushes for a start,they sell them 100% cause I bought mine from them but if I know how to find them on their website....there are other things too missing from their website.

    Agreed. The website search is shite, can't find anything on there!
