AEP Glasgow.

Very best place, for the very best spheres, though, is a Citroen parts counter

AEP are fine, initially they couldn't confirm one of the stats for the 16v which I wanted to match up, pretty sure it was the damper figure but they checked and called back with the information.

I had a mare with AEP last time I used them. They were the reason I didn't have the correct spec for my mk1. Turns out they'd stopped selling that type of sphere, but just sent a different version in its place...without mentioning it. Yet they stocked both types on the website (and even had alternative part numbers for them).
