I mean, if all we're going by is what it says online...

We are one of the professional manufacturers producing brake calipers, suppling the most reliable, safest quality products to our customers, with more than 5,000 OE numbers developing in program for various vehicles including American, European, Japanese and Korean ones. After years of exporting our products to North American and European countries and areas, we have become one of the well-known suppliers for overseas aftermarket, and we also have been the OEM supplier for more than 10 local automakers and joint-venture automakers.

I guess we can trust what Lemforder or Sachs say, because.... uh... because? But can't trust what JHY says, because... uh... because?

"Because they know all they sold ya was a guaranteed piece of sh*t. That's all it is. Hey, if you want me to take a dump in a box and mark it guaranteed, I will. I got spare time. But for right now, for your sake, for your daughter's sake, ya might wanna think about buying a quality item from me."

I trust buying Lemforder or Sachs from FCP because they offer a lifetime replacement and we know they're OE suppliers. They add that badge to give you an incentive to buy the slightly more expensive part, and I think the community generally accepts that genuine european manufacturers are less likely to give you problems. I've never heard of anyone trying to make a case for Vaico parts unless you like doing the job twice.

How do you know VW/Porsche is ordering your "brembos" from JHY?

I don't think anyone even hinted that VW is ordering from JHY.

It's like saying VW is ordering Lemforder for those strut mounts, we know they're not. Lemforder (or Vaico) is just producing a part that slots in as a replacement for the real part at a fraction of the cost because it's not the OEM part.

That's all that's being said here. These calipers are likely just FINE. They will work as intended, just as any other similar part. They're not going to explode the first moment Arcade steps on the brakes or murder his whole family in their sleep.

Jay is hinting at the existence of bone-in nuggies...
Correct...a bone in my pants when I eat boneless wings

It's amazing to me that people don't understand the difference between a factory building a part to OEM specs distributed a manufacturer or known reputable vendor and building half price knockoffs, of already inexpensive parts to unknown specs, off of Alibaba.

It's just baffling. Hey, next go buy cheap wheel bearings and knock off wheels and let us know how awesome they are.

Yo if you point me to where I can get some cheap knock off Neuspeeds, I'll be first in line.

Might actually do a summer and winter set!

I know you would. Maybe you can get some $200 seats off Amazon.

I'm just curious how the tour of the brembo factory went when gtifan watched his calipers being forged at the feet of God?
