Re: All going Chinese! Who makes what now?

I've used both Dephi and Febi parts before without problems,along with quite a few other aftermarket makes.

As you rightly say,many OEM parts are made by outside contractors and they are just put in different boxes depending on whether they are being supplied by a main dealer or a motor factor.

I would definitely avoid buying cheap parts on eBay though,some are most definitely of questionable quality and some are even cheap copies of cheap copies of cheap aftermarket parts.
