Two rules in life:

Don't propose to your girlfriend with a ring from Lidl.

Don't buy a 'no name' intercooler from eBay.

I've never understood the concept of treating eBay like it was a brand. If the "eBay intercooler " is an HKS one or whatever then it's good. If it's a "POWERZONE!!!!11" one then it's not. Same with exhausts....what is an eBay manifold or an eBay decat?

Stay away at all costs!!!!!!!!!!:smthumbdo I`m currently still waiting for my money back! The first one they sent me had no fixing brackets welded on and the second one never had no protection so it came damaged! Each time i had to send it back it cost £17.99 which they said they would refund. Yeah right o. If i don`t get my money soon i`ll be paying them a visit:wallbang:

Typically cheap ebay chinese intercooler cores are ok in efficiency but pipes, hoses and other installation accessories are crap. Some have also had problems with mounting tabs breaking.

"Buy cheap, Buy Twice!!"

Found with ebay intercoolers on other cars they were a knightmare to fit. They are "supposed" to be direct copies of HKS and therefore fit and do the power. Ones bought have either been a knightmare to fit or the core is sh*t.

You may still decide to buy as its cheap and give it a go but then you could have the hassle of waiting weeks/months for goods as ebay sellers usually dont have stock and use your money to buy goods and thus have to wait to for them to get them.

Had a few knightmare problems with ebay!
