That's bloody cheap! With the condensers I take it they either work or don't? In terms of it doesn't matter about More expensive ones?? The only reason I ask that is because I rang an air con specialist to get a quote.
They gave me me a quote of £202 all in for condenser, pressure check and re gas. They said they could get a cheaper condenser but thought it wasn't a good idea as they didn't recommend "that type"... In all fairness it was only £15 cheaper. Apparently.
So it is the same principle of HDMI cables?? In that they either work or don't.... You can get expensive ones but ultimately it's a bit irrelevant?? Obviously I can't run air con on HDMI cables but you get my point?!

Well tbh with 2 years warranty included and no quibble refund how can you go wrong? Of course your air con specialist is going to say that, you're doing him out of a job if you fix it yourself and just get him to gas your system.

Right I've gone and ordered the bargain condenser. I spoke to the chap yesterday, seemed fine. I haven't got a problem fitting it. Can do that no issues. Then book in for a 39.99 Kwik fit re gas. Hopefully all done. I think they give you a refund if they can't fill it up??

I thought they did away with the 10 degrees colder and now if it didn't hold charge there was no charge. ATS also do re gassing too.

I looked again and it's from £49.... But it's recharge or no charge and must be better than 10% difference....
