    Self leveler required vs lay down tile per instructions?

    Can anyone help me track down these tiles?

    I've attached a pic. They are 15 x 15 quarry tiles. Cream/beige in colour with a brown speckle. I have scoured the internet and can't find them anywhere. They are on a front doorstep.

    Cheap tile adhesive down under

    I know this product is unlikely to turn up in the UK anytime soon, but wanted other tilers take on it. I was offered adhesive to buy (C1TES1) and it was almost half the price of Mapei equivalent. I read the datasheets and found some fairly poor spelling and the incorrect use of < & > signs...
