    Looks a nicely made .I was considering making one up from a Corsa b unit but thought better of it.
    I opted for the gps speed sensor but not sure if I shouldn’t have stuck with a std analogue cable one
    Time will tell

    That's a very reasonable price.
    I like the fact that it's all brand new. No Doubt adapted from an Oem brand.

    I have this on my cars
    https://zpowersteering.com/?product=z-power-steering.

    It works well, but there is a bit of play still.

    GPS speed sensor?

    So if GPS fails you lose assistance?

    The opposite by all accounts

    Is that a heat resistant paint on the callipers or do they not need it?
