Anyone try BavarianAutosport Brand parts?

Anyone try BavarianAutosport Brand parts? More specifically, the rods? I hit a financial "hole" that'll last a month or two and I need to R&R my front tie rods.. And we'll my rear camber bolts.

But has anyone purchased the BavAuto tie rods? They're under $25. I cant find anything about who makes it or anything but I'm guessing it's made by them idk..

Also, What would cause it to be "cheap"? The type of metal?

We are not the actual manufacturer but we import them direct from a supplier in Germany. However the parts are not always made there. Of course neither are a lot of genuine BMW parts these days. The same facilities that make these parts also make them for a number of European aftermarket part suppliers. They are TUV approved replacement parts with a 2 year warranty directly through us.

Ken,

Can you please tell me who the manufacturer is? I'd like to know before I purchase them.

Honestly besides our label all these say on the packaging is "quality approved Germany" and there is no marking on the part itself indicating a certain brand. They have a 2 year warranty and we stand behind them. If you want a branded part we also carry Lemfoerder and Genuine BMW tie rods. But at nowhere near this price point.

I understand. But you need to understand where I'm coming from too.. Any anyone and everyone would want to know where their parts are coming from or not just that, but who makes them. No? Two year warranty is fine but with the price of labor in our area nowadays, a two warranty isn't so great LOL. Especially when the other companies are much greater; if not lifetime.

But thanks for your help.
