    Not sure how much they are but they only take a couple of minutes to fit.
    there are a few different types so make sure you get the right one.

    In the petrol station - thanks to the supercharger
    I bought a pattern part for mine just under 2 yrs ago from Egay. Cost £35ish I recall and has been fine. I have also read a lot of different posts on here over that time which do not recommend the use of aftermarket AFMs.

    Maybe I have been lucky but certainly saved a whole heap of cash compared to LR, and yes, tis a piece of **** to fit, 1 electrical connector, 2 spring clips and a jubilee clip. 5 mins max - and that includes finding the screwdriver.

    I had 6 aftermarket AFM`s all from diffrent places and all diffrent prices, not one was any good. The car had a definate flat spot in the same place on all of the meters, i ended up getting a good 2nd hand original. Mine is a gems set up and the main dealers want £680.00 + vat for this part, i believe that for a thor the price is considerably less.
