I am surprised you got that much out of it!

The Enduro Fork Seals ones are the best I have come across, that said Hope have a very sexy looking one on the horizon.

There are some shimano stainless ceramic ones on ebay at the moment 26 quid i think, remove the bearings from the pressfit cups and pop the new ones in, don't know what the life will be like though.
