Is it me or are there are a higher percentage of people with parts issues were bought from eBay. We're talking 30 - 40 thousand dollar performance cars (when they were new) and try to save a couple bucks buying parts on eBay. I don't care if it's $.30 or $20 I pay the extra for quality parts.

If you've ever in a manufacturing plant in the far east (I have for electronic parts) you'll notice they have two bins at quality control. The good bin and the bad bin. Do you really think they throw away the bad parts. It cost my company over a million dollars two years ago from someone in China subbing parts from the bad bin in our amplifiers. He did it randomly so it took a year to figure it out. We weren't the only ones this individual screwed.
