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.
Great customer service and quality. Easy to install and a great purchase.
Top quality product from an amazing company. Fits perfectly as OEM, highly recommend
Normally when a product for a car states it’s an easy job to fit it is a nightmare for me! However, these struts really were easy to fit! I watched the video first and was able to fit them myself in five minutes. Really pleased with the results-love remote opening my hatchback . I’m like a big kid every time with a smile on my face. Only negative is that the hatch requires two hands to close it at the moment but it does appear to be getting easier with repeated use.
Great product , very easy to fit , works all the time , remember long press on the open boot button .
Absolutely amazed by this simple add on
The luxury, the packaging, the handling. Pure professionalism. Boot pops up, smile comes up. Worth it!
Very happy looks really cool
Fast delivery and easy to fit.
Excellent product- fitted in afew minutes,it’s that easy, works fine- just need to get to the gym to close it!!! But I’m sure it will loosen up over time
Struts are decent quality just found them to be a bit poor quality my struts have a lot of sideways movement just hope they don’t end up leaking
Easy to fit, works a treat! very pleased thanks
I found the service excellent, the item was delivered very quickly and they were easy and quick to install
Easy to install, the struts were a little shorter than my old one by 5-10mm. The spring rate is very stiff though, opens the bootlid all the way up but takes some effort to close it back. Will probably take time to adjust to a softer close with use. Best part was opening the boot with the key. Works as advertised. The team was also helpful in resolving some queries prior to purchase. Might revise to 5 stars with a few months of use.
Easy to fit, took 5 mins
Fitted well no problems
Quick delivery and easy to fit. And work very well thanks
Great product shipped very quickly. The instructions were very clear and it only took 5 minutes to swap the struts on my RS3.
Easy install, super sleek packaging. George has done something amazing with this product and his support is great!
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
Works really nice
Excellent item and works a treat!
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.
