Febi just repackage. Sometime you get lucky and find an OEM part in the box, sometimes it’s a naff unknown. I think they must be confused with Bilstein.
Meyle are usually rubbish other than the HD suspension arms.
Care to tell us how you have come to this conclusion? When it come to parts, Mercedes too MAKE little but rebox lots....I think not. They MAKE little but rebox lots. Sometimes you can get lucky with Febi but I've never tried Meyle. Maybe you mean Mahle?
Bilstein (as in OEM dampers/shocks) is a ThyssenKrupp brand."Since 2012, the product brand Febi has been part of the Bilstein group that also anchors other renowned brands under its strong umbrella". Any adverse opinion on Bilstein?
No, not qualified but relaying the experiences of many who report on the internet. I probably spend too much time on the internet.So you have never tried parts from Meyle but feel qualified to comment on the poor quality of them?
True. So one needs to judge for oneself, based on the feedback that one feels is both informed and impartial. Not easy, I know.people will often post negative experiences more readily than positive ones.
I totally agree that I would rather pay extra for a higher quality item in any walk of life.True. So one needs to judge for oneself, based on the feedback that one feels is both informed and impartial. Not easy, I know.
My policy is to pay the premium prices for original parts whenever I cannot perform the replacement myself or when it is a critical, safety-related component. So far, so good. Although I do feel that prices are becoming increasingly hard to bare.
