hi
i have replaced sets in 2 engines, one with new bosch and one with rebuilt from python injection. there was no noticeable difference between the two sets except the car went faster on the new bosch because my wallet was so light.
both sets have been in the approx. same time and both work perfectly
cheers

I had these guys rebuild the injectors in my '72 280SEL 4.5:

I was happy with their service and the price was very reasonable...I highly recommend them.
