Good find. That's a really decent set. And Grohe generally have great build quality.

For anyone wondering, this has been £100 consistently for several months. It once dropped to £80 during a lightening deal once, but other than that £89 is a good drop.
Is it too much to ask at this price to have copper parts instead of plastic?

Me too hence the question.
Daft question but is this a shower that heats up water? ie just needs a cold water feed? or do I need to have both hot and cold water feeds? Basically we want to put a shower above a bath? would this do the trick?

No, you will need a hot and cold feed
Thankyou. So can I just take the hot and cold feed from the taps and run pipes to the shower or do I have to dig into the wall/retile etc...

Sorry. But I'm clueless on all this... I just want to fit a shower above the bath...

It doesn't heat up the water, it mixes the hot and cold you already have and controls the temperature thermostatically. If you're not an advanced plumbing DIYer it will need professionally fitting and, yes, they'll probably have to rip up your tiles as it's wall mounting.

You can get similar functionality from a thermostatic mixer tap which just replaces your hot and cold taps and has external piping from there. You'll still need a decent hot and cold supply, adequate water pressure and plumbing skills to fit it but should be a very quick job for an experienced plumber and your tiles will be safe. Something like this (just an example, not necessarily a deal):

If you want something which also heats the water (typically an electric shower) then you're into a much bigger job including an electrical supply with appropriate safety measures (water and electricity don't mix well!). Don't even think about doing that yourself!

Which bits do you want in copper? Your pipes will usually be copper but you don't want to see them. The body of the mixer will be chromed brass. Do you mean you don't want chrome effect plastic knobs? In my experience they can be good (our Bathstore ones still look like new after 7 years). You shouldn't be using abrasives on chrome whatever the base material as it will soon rub through.

Exposed copper, if they exist, would turn green (oxides of copper) unless you want to polish then every day or two!

You'd need to either trench into the wall, drill through or build a false wall for the pipes to go behind.

You may be better just getting a 10kw electric power shower, obviously it'll need both water and electricity connecting to It, but it's less messing around than a thermostatic shower (depending on where your mains box is is in relation to your shower).
We have 1 in each of our 2 bathrooms fed by a combi boiler. The first is in use for about 16 years and the other about 6 or 7 years. They have been faultless, and the thermostatic water temperature control, with its overrideable safety stop, has never let us down. I can't remember what I paid but it will have been a lot more than £89.
These are very reliable and good quality units. I fit these in my hotel! Heat added!
would have bought if they had 3/4bsp inlets but these are only half inch
