MTC vs original MB vs. meyle

now most of you who buy from the fastlane, ********az, buymbparts, etc. Probably have bought an air filter bracket once or twice from MTC (Mission Trading Company) and you would think its a good brand as the brackets come in a bag labeled "made in germany"

Well.......no they arent. I had compared the brackets at my work. You can feel the "flimsyness" in the mtc's. I discovered that alot of parts that claim are made in germany are actually made in phenoix arizona. There are 3 guys at my work that have to figure out which ones are authentic german and which ones are fake.

They told me compare meyle and MB to the MTC's and i could see the differnce. This of course was after i had bought MTC window switches for my dads W123.......after 2 weeks of use they no longer work. MB ones were $70 per set and meyle were $40. Well i bought the meyle instead and its been a month on them and still work.

Basically what im ranting about is that if you decide to buy parts like the window switches or air filter brackets from fastlane, ********az, buymbparts. Request to rusty (buymbparts) phil (fastlane) or for ********az request under the UPS "special instructions, that you get the meyle or MB brand and not the MTC.

That way when i go pull the parts at my work it will be printed on the invoice "get meyle brand not mtc" since all the parts are under the same part number it just depends on the manufacter code that tells me the location to grab the part.


if anything i said confuses you just ask me to clarify
