FCP Euro carries 914 parts as well as many other Porsches and guarantees all purchases forever. They are not the cheapest but their warranty is worth 5he extra expense. Exceptions for common wear items like plugs and wipers. Check them out.

Like OEM is brand now we have a simular issue in Europe.

All electrical devices sold in Europe need the CE label (conformité europeen)... some chinese manufacturers now also use a CE label which stands for China Export.

Thanks for the heads up...haven't heard that before. I'm going to have to watch for that now at work. Damn. Yet another reason to force people to supply the actual document, not just basing it on the stamp.

I was looking for parts on Pelican yesterday. I can't tell if the parts are Chinese knock offs or not. I have confirmed the lack of information with my friend and mechanic Jay Kjoller. He has a number of recent horror stories of substandard parts and the worst thing is that the vendor didn't even know, when questioned, that they are Chinese and swears otherwise. Jay spoke with the manufacturer (parts for a transmission) who said they stamp an identifying mark because people will file a warranty claim with them in spite of the fact that it is a knock off. On Pelican, the listing for one of the parts will show the colors of the German flag and say "OEM." It's Chinese stuff. Jay had rod bolts that were so out of spec that they wouldn't even fit. After two bad orders he ordered from Germany. The transmission parts were also grossly out of spec. From a Colorado vendor. The box was a poor attempt at duplicating the real manufacturer's. Jay finally ordered from Australia. I don't know what to order most times.

But I'll say this, I think vendors ought to be required to indicate the country of origin. We consumers ought to demand it. Further, I think it is misleading to say "OEM". Beyond that, there is a word for providing misleading information that is material to the buyer's decision -- FRAUD.


Written like a lawyer .... Stay warm my friend.
