The gas struts that hold the hatch open on my N15 S2 SSS have finally started to die (not bad after 19 years). What have other people found is the best option for getting them fixed?

There's a guy who advertises gas strut recharging in the local yellow pages, but I'd guess it's not cheap for him to do the job.

Alternatively, I can buy a pair of non-genuine replacements off eBay for $60 delivered.

The cheap and nasty eBay ones sound like the way to go. Has anyone replaced/repaired their gas struts recently and have some input on this?
