I'm picky when it comes to parting out stuff for my car. I bought the FEBI ones since some guys told me the genuine Skoda ones rust to quickly. They didn't tell me that the FEBI ones are better or anything else - I just bought them since these was the ones I could get my hands on fastest  :evilgrin:

They have new seen all sorts of wheather, and even stayed 2 days lifted with out making any noise when I closed the tailgate after the 2 days. Don't think genuine VAG struts would have closed without noise after staying up for 2 days hehe.
thats awesome bud thanks for the info and will be next on me shopping list  :happy2:

Uh oh it's on Amazon Prime...
Struts - £19.17 x2 = £38.34
Ball Pins - £9.99 x2 = £19.98
Rocco Stops - £18.49
Total = £76.81

This isn't good for avoiding impulse buys. Though the price going up compared to before is sad.

Edit: Are the ballpins also known as WHT006580?
Edit2: https://www.ecstuning.com/b-genuine-volkswagen-audi-parts/strut-ball-pin-priced-each/wht006580/ seems to think the 1J6 827 439 A were superceded by these...

How does this mod work when opening the locks from the inside switch on the drivers door, to open rear passenger door. Will the boot open when this button is activated?

If you have the 3 button fob with boot release do you still need to enable anything via vagcom?

If your boot unlocks via the button now, then you won't need to do anything extra in the coding.   It wasn't enabled on my 07 ED30, but it's a simple tick in the long coding in VCDS.
Black Edition 30 with manually selected cogs, a beefier clutch, some extra boost and them Whiteline thingies, otherwise standard.

Yes you will need to enable it in vcds to release the boot mechanism via the fob to allow boot to pop open. 55plate 2006 reg here

Can you lads still open the hatch from the actual hatch handle (badge)? Mines only remote now, which although great, sometimes I'd like an option to use the designated handle too.

Cheers

Also worth noting
If your boot catch ever fails your boot will be left wide open, had this happen a few weeks ago.Luckily i wasnt far from TPS.
