The winner is the guy whose calipers don't fail.

It's looking like Sunday. Unless my stainless lines from Temu get delivered early. They're currently set to be delivered Saturday.

Now look at what single piston, sliding, cast iron PP calipers cost.
That's not so true, single piston calipers are made by trw and they are really cheap if bought it directly.

Oem trw caliper 5G0615123A price $425

Oem trw carrier 5G0615123A price $299

If you wanna trust some from an uncertified factory (although they do claim OE quality), I can point you where to get some for $20 🤣

I think your caliper are oe quality. Ive seen them on autodoc. They have the same casting where the logo is. I think they are branded by a.b.s.

So more than half the cost of a brembo caliper for trw? I guess that's a good deal???

Kinda. Because I wanted one with the big single center tach. Technically it worked fine, but caused errors in unrelated systems (front assist, for some reason). Best thing the seller could say was because it wasn't made for NAR cars 🤷

Didn't end up keeping it.

Had one before that in my GTI that worked 💯💯🔥🔥
That’s not really a knock off comparison though… it took a different solution route than oem on those dashes

The IATF 16949 standard is structured around eight key Quality Management Principles:

  1. Customer focus
  2. Leadership
  3. Involvement of people
  4. Process approach
  5. System approach to management
  6. Continual improvement
  7. Fact-based decision making
  8. Mutually beneficial supplier relationships
It's not an engineering standard, spec, nor does it require that your caliper be produced with the proper aluminum. It's the movie Office Space in a factory. 🤣

Can you point to any specific requirement in this certification that would prevent them from selling you a poor knockoff caliper? Serious question.
i like it.

No, you pointed to some certification, that has zero to do with whether or not the calipers are any good, as being a good reason to buy shady knockoffs.

Show me anything that shows IATF has anything to do with engineering specs.

You're zrick in this scenario. You just want your nonsense to be true so badly, you'll ignore all reality.
arcadie reminds me of a younger riceburner getting a b8 s4 for 10k.

one person received one, the other one is on a boat. neither are running in a car yet
I'm still curious about the engines.

1. Used engines.
2. New VW OEM engines
3. New knockoff engine.

Someone explain this to me.
