Now I am confused.

In 20+ years of MB ownership, I have had a starter and a alternator replaced by a dealer. In both cases, they recommended rebuilts and there was no further trouble with them.

Last month, I bought a rebuilt starter and alternator for my 250C. The warranty info lists Robert Bosch Corp of Broadview IL and has the logos "Bosch Premium Quality" and "New Man".

I assumed at the time that I bought Bosch rebuilt parts. They came from Partsouth in Atlanta whom I selected because they were $70 cheaper on the order.

So, from what you guys say, are there different kinds of electrical rebuilts even though they come in a Bosch box with a Bosch warranty?
