Default Fuel pump gasket - anyone buy from here

I want to get a fuel pump housing gasket kit, just to be on the safe side. Since its a horrible job I don't want to have to do it again.
There are a few places in the USA which sell the kit.
However I found this UK place, but I wonder if it is trustworthy/good qualty.
Anyone heard of this shop?

I've seen the name popup in Google searches, but never used them. You might want to email the following two sites (I've used them in the past with no issues) as searching on the part number comes back positive, as opposed to 'not available'. Not sure about import duties as I've only ordered one item (less than a 10) from outside the UK since Brexit.

Quite probably buys in the EU, including from Audi Tradition then ships here after adding any handling/shipping/taxes. There are well-known reliable businesses that do that regularly both here and there.
Not least our sponsors!

Thanks, good to know they are legit. I won't use them this time as I need the parts quickly.
