To explain, on a forum, the 'we' is whomever it was that participated in the thread. In any one thread, it's usually only about a dozen or so people - so - by its very nature, it's a select audience.

However, usually for these threads, there are hundreds of visitors (sometimes hundreds of thousands), so, if the 'we' in the thread were dead wrong, usually someone would be there to refute it in time.

BTW, IIRC, the parts I got from Max at Oembimmerparts have the logo scratched off. I don't think Max is selling us bad parts ... he's just not an authorized dealer or whatever the legal term is.

Of course, I don't disagree that counterfit parts might be out there, especially on ebay and those types of places. Maybe a supplier can chime in?

Your job, in return, is to read the suggested threads, where the best people will always add value to those threads, either by pictures or by descriptions, so the next person with the same problem stands on your shoulders.
