I've heard folk say "buy Bosch" for these.
They are common to cars like (I think) an old BMW 635...and I think available from many sources...but insist on Bosch.

Go Bosch for both the Cap and the Rotor Arm every time.
I've tried cheaper ones and they've never been that good or lasted for long.
I'd snap up Clee's offer if I were you.

Cheers, Bazzer.

Is it a Bosch one though or ching chong ling long?

I have had my Bosch Dizzy cap fitted to my A610 for nearly five years and it's still going strong. It's common for the after market ones to fail within a year...

Will double check, I guess it had been in stock a while, the one I took off was definitely Bosch. Gearbox 0191 266 0508.
