But it is cheap - and you do realise that most of the stuff you buy locally is just the stuff made in China/Thailand/Taiwan/Korea/Etcetera with a different label on it?china = NOT COOL
it's same stuff u get on ebay and might be even same sellersBut it is cheap - and you do realise that most of the stuff you buy locally is just the stuff made in China/Thailand/Taiwan/Korea/Etcetera with a different label on it?
Frex, in Oz, the GM supplied "alloy sports pedal set" for the Cruze costs $185. I had a look in the box at a dealer, it's just the rubber form with a sliver of alloy glued to it (made in China). So really, it's not an "alloy pedal set", it's a set of "alloy-like pedal covers". But car companies lie. A lot.
On eBay, the prices for similar vary from about $22 to $40, I went with a $35 (free postage) set that look interesting.
I looked on Aliexpress, but decided not to buy from the website. I found a Chinese vendor through EBay to purchase my BMW tail lights at a fair price after negotiating. I did notice that there are numerous makers so you will have to decide which ones you want. I went through Winpower group because their description sounded more convincing and they are a large manufacturer of head and tail lights. I also looked through multiple vendors on Taobao.com and used Google chrome to translate and read reviews. The taillights that I have now were not the first big ticket item I have ordered from China. Back when I had my Evolution X - I did a full OEM projector headlight replacement. I purchased true Mitsubishi gen 3 ballasts and headlights with built in leveling motors through Taobao.com.... I purchased the items through a middleman vendor called Taobaofocus.com - you can then view a larger selection of sellers that might not ship internationally. The company will follow the item you want, purchase it and ship it to you..... The only problem is their packing isn't as great as factory because they try to make it as cheap as possible for you shipping wise. I was lucky but others had broken tabs. You can also find stuff cheaper on taobao then aliexpress because when the company buys the item at Chinese prices. Most of the sellers on Aliexpress are aware of what international markets will pay and mark items up. If you order directly from China through a middle man vendor you'll most likely save 50-100.00.Is the website aliexpress.com a good website that you can trust your $$$ will not be taken...I keep seeing things for the Cruze on there that I wanna get like the BMW style tail lights, but idk...that website kinda raises a red flag to me...anyone have experience buying from this website???
