Same quality parts?

I want to replace the front struts on my E39, I noticed the autopartway.ca has lower pricing than Pelican parts.

http://www.autopartsway.ca/PartDetai.../pagenum1/tabS

http://www.pelicanparts.com/cgi-bin/...ring%2C%20Each

Am I missing something?

I'm not being paranoid, I've read in a few threads that not all aftermarket sachs struts are the same... quite a few people have bought the same struts from bavauto and autohauzAZ and lots of them failed in a short period.

So.. what do you think?

I highly doubt its the same Sachs sold at dealership. They both seem to be "red tag" Aftermarket Sachs.

as far as I know it is the same without the silly mark up and bmw stamp on it.


Id put the performance of the ones from autopartsway as identical as the ones from the dealer without the asinine price. But sachs arent known to last too long really...

Id run a billie or koni instead personally.

Konis suck too, but they do have lifetime warranty...

Sigh.

Autopartsway is good. No negatives to report.
