Default Anyone bought a snorkel from "kingsleycrew" or "offroading australia" on eBay?

As per the thread title, has anyone bought a snorkel from "kingsleycrew" on eBay? ("offroading australia" is the name of the seller's eBay store)

If you have, what was it like (ie quality, ease of install, accuracy of template)?

I am considering buying one for my 'blister guard' NL 3.5L Petrol but I guess all of their kits would be similar in regards to quality, ease of install, and accuracy of template.

Here's a link to one of their many snorkels...

No I haven't and not in regards to snorkels themselves, but Dave seems to be a good guy. I know a few have bought parts of him and been more than happy. He is also a commercial advertiser on this site, have a look in the commercial section.

I didn't buy a snorkel but bought an oil cooler line and was very happy with price, service and quality of part.

I'd forgotten Kingsleycrew was an advertiser/supporter of the forum.

I also appreciate everyone's comments too.

Apart from the occasional listing for genuine parts that aren't genuine -.- but over all lots of new parts which is always a good thing.

Make sure you take the extra time and get the template on right

I ended up buying one from direct4x4accesories via eBay auction ($152.50).

The template was a bit out 5-10mm (but this didn't matter as the holes I had to elongate were covered by the snorkel), and the plumbing from the snorkel to the airbox did not fit and I had to make it from scratch. On a good note, the external part of the snorkel fits great and direct4x4accesoriesafter sale service was great! (when I told them about the issues they offered a full refund including the cost to freight it back to them - unfortunately by this stage I'd already cut the holes in the guard so they did a generous partial refund to cover the cost involved in making the snorkel to air box hose.
