B&Q no good but Wickes is an almost exact match https://www.wickes.co.uk/Wickes-165-Degree-Clip-On-Concealed-Cabinet-Hinge---Nickel-35mm-Pack-of-2/p/103291
The B&Q ones clip on the base a different way, the base doesnt clip onto the B&Q hinge so it wont work the other way around IE their hinge on my base. The wickes one looks almost identical to mine, same markings and everything. I have reserved a pair for collection tomorrow so Im getting my own aladins cave together LOL!

Picked up two from Wickes theyre not the same as advertised rthe bases are different, I will wait for the ebay one to come (due yesterday) and see if it will fit the base if not I will see if I can fix mine using parts from the others, if not I will attempt to swap the base. Not sure what scares me most LOL!

Decided to bite the bullet took the wickes one apart, the took my old one apart and made a good one out of the two. its bonding right now next drill adnd bolt it, then fill it and paint it I was thinking of painting the handles black the paint shop said they would want to do the whole door to be sure the colour matches (that was when I was losing the handles as we know them ie fill em in like beanies.)

Fitted the handle today, I cannot believe the difference between how it feels now to how it felt before. I have to fill it and paint it black. the passenger door should be easier now I know what I'm doing.  Also took out the Maff sensor for cleaning it was filthy so I hope this is my 171 175 fault code problem I've added injector cleaner to my fuel in case it's an injector that needs cleaning.
