DO YOU PROVIDE A WARRANTY?
WE PROVIDE A 12 MONTH WARRANTY FOR FAULTY PRODUCTS, HOWEVER WE DO NOT PROVIDE A WARRANTY FOR DAMAGES CAUSED IF INSTALLED INCORRECTLY.
DO I NEED TO GET MY CAR CODED?
NO, THERE IS NO CODING REQUIRED, YOU REMOVE YOUR EXISTING STRUTS AND REPLACE THEM WITH OURS.
I HAVE INSTALLED THEM BUT IT ISN'T OPENING?
MAKE SURE YOU ARE HOLDING DOWN THE BOOT BUTTON ON YOUR KEY FOB. ALSO ENSURE YOU HAVE FOLLOWED THE 'INSTALLATION CARD' CORRECTLY.
THE BOOT REQUIRED MORE FORCE TO CLOSE, IS THIS NORMAL AND WILL IT CAUSE DAMAGE TO MY BOOT?
THIS IS PERFECTLY NORMAL! THE EXTRA PRESSURE IS REQUIRED AS A RESULT OF THE SPRING IN PLACE. WITHOUT THIS, THE BOOT WILL NOT 'POP' OPEN.
THE PRESSURE REQUIRED WILL EASE OVER TIME, AND YOU WILL NATURALLY ADJUST TO THIS WITHOUT EVEN REALISING.
ALL STRUTS ARE DESIGNED AND TESTED PRIOR RELEASE, TO ENSURE THEY HAVE ENOUGH POWER TO OPEN YOUR BOOT WITHOUT CAUSING DAMAGE.
Fits perfect, opens up automatic, all good, but a little tight to close
Very easy to fit, ram side call mount could be improved by bending in a bit like the original ones but it doesn’t effect how it works. Opens and boot goes up nice and steady, not too hard to close. Great product
Excellent especially for the wife when she returns to the car full of shopping. 5 min job to swap over from standard struts. Would highly recommend and George was very helpful. Cheers George.
Very very good
Easy to install
Ordered the Struts for my Audi S3 8v.
Delivered in super quick time & very easy to fit.
Will definitely recommend Emerald Struts to anyone.
Well happy with the struts especially when the missus has so many bags returning to the car after shopping.
Does what is says on the tin. Closing boot takes more effort once fitted though.
Quality product & really easy to fit, makes it easier when loading the boot. Highly recommend to anyone thinking of buying them.
The item works perfectly and it’s really easy to set up (3-4 minutes). The staff is really kind and available to solve your problems (i have had delivery problems).
So 5 stars
Quick and easy installation and fast delivery
Just love it !!!
Pleased with the struts ,the only negative is that it does take a bit more effort to shut the boot lid .
Great quality! Really happy with my struts. Even better with the 20% off code. Telling all my friends and family about them!!!
Top quality bit of kit Highly recommend
Love my new struts, what a breeze to fit - all done within 10 minutes.
Will definitely recommend to my friends.
Easy to follow instructions and to fit. Can be done by yourself if needs must but a lot easier with 2 people. Makes loading a lot easier!
They work as described brill!
Excellent product and works a treat, as others have said slightly harder to press down but that is to be expected. Overall a bargain of a buy should have done it 2 years ago
I ordered the wrong struts for my boyfriends car in August and when I messaged on Boxing Day to see if I could exchange them the company didn’t even think twice they paid for the postage and sent them right away. Can not thank them enough for their service and we absolutely love them makes our life so much easier.
Overall very good, thank you
Easy installation within a few minutes and works like a charm :)
Easy to fit
Very good !!
Works as described and is easy to install. The only downside is that you need to put force to close it down. It's like a mini-workout.
Five minutes too fit. Excellent product.
Very easy to install, took about 5 mins. The clips on the new struts were a bit fiddly but like i said very easy.
Straight swap completely and amazing results. massively improves the car and makes it easier when havinf your hands full and needing to open the boot.
The boot is quite a bit harder to shut but not too bad.
Good item but makes it very hard to closes the boot.
Really good product, helpful if hands are full. Only problem I have is the struts are quite stiff. Hopefully with time it will go back to normal.
Boot shocks just arrived and took me only 10min to install both sides, I must admit, I was a bit sceptical at first! But as soon as I closed that boot lid and pressed boot unlock on my Audi remote, I was blown away how quick it responded and did exactly as it stated, “automatic boot lid opening” with just a press of your remote!!!
Absolutely love this product and can’t recommend it enough..
Super fast delivery, simple to install (less than 10 mins) & look great! Thank you so much.
Arrived quickly, simple installation instructions, hands down the simplest modification I’ve ever done to a car I've owned
Super fast delivery and fitted within minutes. Great idea at a great price. Great mod to my S3.
Had to get replacements items as there was an issue with my original purchase, contacted emerald struts who viewed a short video of the issue and agreed to replace the items under warranty, 5 star service and I would definitely recommend their products to anyone
Thx Emerald. Nine days delivery from UK to Wollongong, Australia. Better service than some domestic deliveries in AU. Easy to fit and performs well. As per other reviews at new a little firm to close but not ridiculous and should ease with time. Great product and great service. Can highly recommend to Audi A3 owners in Australia or elsewhere.
Emeralds communication, shipment tracking and delivery time world class.
Great product and easy installation
Makes a very good impression.
Easy to install.
Great quick service and so easy to fit!
Well packaged struts arrived in good time from o/s.
Fitted in 5mins & working beautifully. Quality is good & look very well made. Will update this review in 6m'ths.
Just what I’ve been wanting since I bought my car. Install only took 5 min. Super super easy. Gonna recommend to all my VAG buddies
J'adore votre produit !
It is amazing bit of kit I am glad I got it as it makes it easier for me to get in my boot when my hands all full
Amazing product, so easy to fit, and it does what emerald struts say.
It is amazing bit of kit I wish the car came with them from factory as it has helped me out very much since I fitted them and I would highly recommend other people to get them
It workes as good as shown in the clips. I've made a clip myself and screenshot it while it was opening. Quality is definitely good and the customized products look damn good and fit perfectly. Trunk opens so smooth like its electric.
The delivery from UK to Germany through customs was taking about 3 working days!!!
Only thing I'm still trying to understand, is how long it will take until it gets a bit easier to close it (my girlfriend can't close it one-handed hahahaha). But for me it's definitely worth each penny and looks great. Definitely recommending this to everyone who likes comfortable stuff.
OH and yes I was also sceptical when I saw that site and the reviews but I tried it and can tell you, that you're in great service in here!
Thanks for the product and the great service - best regards from Germany!
So easy to fit and works great
Très utile, mais un peu dur pour le fermer
Quick and easy installation! Definitely recommend it to anyone
Easy to fit.. even for a blonde girl! Took less than 10 minutes but make sure you have someone to hold the boot for you. Such a cool extra to add to your car and fast and easy delivery. Very happy with my struts! Highly recommend
Saw this on a few peoples car, and thought that looks really cool. Now I have one I’m so impressed. From how quickly it arrived, packaged well, clear instructions etc etc. Highly recommended product. Thank you.
i love this product because it makes the car even cooler and more useful!
Absolutely made with this product ! Easy to fit with clear simple instructions and installed in less than 10 minutes, would highly recommend
A very nice and useful product, just put them in place of the originals, press the boot button and enjoy the magic, thanks a lot from Italy!
Great product and so easy to install
Simple and easy to install and work a treat, great addition to any car!
Excellent product does what it should opens nice and slow took 5 mins to fit both very happy with my purchase
Great company well recommended
It was a simple enought installation. I had a bit of an issue closing the boot at first. It seemed like it didn't close, but after some force it closed. Guess it will loosen up as time goes on. The boot release works a treat! One thing I would say is to add to the instructions to force the boot lid down once the struts have been installed. Emerald Struts customer service on social media could be better with response times. But other than that I'm happy with my purchase.
Arrivé en bon état, ça fonctionne bien et c’est super pratique! Cce n’est pas si dur que ça à refermé! mais la douane belge a ouvert le colis, il n’y avait du coup pas de Manuel d’utilisation. Je ne savais donc pas qu’il fallait enlever la petite goupille et qu’il fallait la remettre par après!
It works good!
Dealt with my issues straight away and received full communication throughout.
Fits spot on, looks sleeker than the old struts. Tad harder to put back down but well worth it
Great product fast delivery and only 10 minutes to fit
Totally love them!
Mine came without the red springs, perhaps they are the latest model?
This makes them look very similar to the OE version.
Installation was really easy, removing the old ones is just a matter of pulling a couple clips with a flat screwdriver and popping them out. Installing the new ones can be done just with your hands no tools needed as you just pop them on and secure the clips manually.
They work very well and didn't add too much resistance when closing the boot.
Come and see them in action on my Instagram profile https://www.instagram.com/va13ryo/
Works fine so far
Easy to fit couple of minutes and the struts were on and worked purfectly.
Just received my struts.. fitted within minutes and works flawlessly with a long press of the boot button. Even better is the fact my struts came without springs so retains that oem look
Great addition to my car, worked perfect from the moment they were fitted, super easy to fit on top of that and look great when in action. 10/10
Took 5 minutes to fit and work
Really good product, very high quality and had no problems so far.
Got them today easy to install took about 10 minutes to do and they work perfectly.
Excellent product. Easy to install. Would highly recommend.
Order on Saturday got on Wednesday really happy with the product easy to install aswell
Great service, took 10 minutes to fit and gives a bit more class to the Audi. Extremely happy.
Pretty good system and really easy to install. As these springs are a bit tougher than normal, it does take a bit of getting used to, but that will soon pass.
The price is pretty reasonable and the customer support I got was excellent. Will definitely buy for my next car that has a manual boot.
Absolutely love it! Great product, easy to install and a good addition to show off your car in the car park!
Superb item the struts were stiff on first fitting needed to bounce the boot for 10 mins so the boot closed properly, superb item and does what it says on the tin
easy to install
Perfect fit, works super good. Installed on Audi A3 8V sportback.
Recommended to buy this good product!
Great Product, Very Easy To Fit & Top Quality.
If You Haven’t Got Them, Get Them As It Is So Handy And Has Made Life A Lot Easier! Plus it looks Great.
Thanks Emerald Struts!
Very high quality and definitely recommended!
My RS3 was needing something like this for added convenience and it definitely was worth the purchase. Very easy to fit also.
I have bought this product for my s3 and they are perfect would highly recommend

I got these as a Christmas present .. perfect product !
Really easy to fit
highly recommend :)
emerald Struts again
Pleasantly impressed with my Audi struts, nice little feature when pressing the boot key button. 5*
Very easy to instal and a nice addition to the car. Only thing is that closing the boot after they have been installed is rather difficult - hopefully over time this gets easier!
Not fitted yet as they're a Christmas present for my partner.
Very happy with my emerald struts. They work perfectly and look very well made.
Easy to fit, work brilliantly, very nicely finished product
Struggled to lift open boot after a bit of snow But same was the case for my BMW G30 5 series that has factory fitted boot opening feature
So far so good. Only installed a few weeks ago, very simple to install and makes a very cool feature of the car. We've had some really low temperatures recently and it still seems to work off the button every time
Easy to order and easy to fit
Very good bit of kit
Excellent customer service and excellent well built product!! It has made my life so much easier when putting bags and groceries etc with the new boot struts. In fact I have bought another set which I will put onto my brothers car.
I bought these in October, shipping was fast and installation was easy once I watched a video! Quality product! Would highly rate this! Only thing is it does increase how much pressure it takes to close the boot, but well worth it in my opinion!
Hi I love the struts and they seem to add a little extra class to the Audi. They are very well machined and the build quality is good. The only minor is since the temperature has dropped the struts only open the boot a few inches first thing on a morning. I don’t know how this will change during winter but time will tell.
No instructions but worked it out for myself.
Fitted it in 20 minutes
Amazing product, great customer service ... all in al a great product and company !
