Tin top - Elstock remanufactured??

Guys, looks as if the tintop needs a new front left caliper.
Problem is the majors for some unfathomable reason don't have stock.
The only one I've found is a remanufactured one by Elstock.
Anyone have any experience/comments on them please?
TIA. Cheers, Pewe10

Thanks. Conrod.
Just looked them up - stock everything except front left caliper!
What is it about that part?
Cheers and have a great weekend, P

Thanks for the suggestions - tried them all.
BMW unsurprisingly c.300 v anything from 75- 130
I'll have to see if supplying dealer can swing it on the extended warranty...

Another vote for these guys, done a few sets for me now and always good service.

Finally found one by Mister Auto (part of PSA).
Looks like their own brand and not especially cheap @ 120 but seems like one of the few currently available in the whole of Europe!
Hope other spares aren't going to be so illusive...
