Is it ok to mention other parts houses here or is it frowned upon?

I am waiting to hear back from some of the other forum users before I mention any names.

I found a new parts supplier online and although I haven't used them yet, I am thinking of buying a complete weather seal kit for $345.00 bucks!

1077250666 Soft Top Seal LH (Soft top to rear edge of door)
1077250566 Soft Top Seal RH (Soft top to rear edge of door)
1076900897 Pillar Post Seal RH
1076900797 Pillar Post Seal LH
1077580098 Trunk Seal
1077900198 Hard Top Seal Rear Hard top to body
1077710098 Soft Top Seal Rear (soft top to body)
1077200978 Soft Top Seal LH
1077201078 Soft Top Seal RH
1077200578 Hard Top Seal LH (hard top to window L Shape)
1077200678 Hard Top Seal RH (hard top to window L Shape)
1077790022 Convertible Top Seal (convertible top to windshield)

1077790022 Hard Top Seal (hard top to windshield)

1077580198 Soft Top Cover Seal (protective cover seal)



They also show a subframe mount kit for under $50!

I would like to hear from someone here that has done business with them before I do business with them.

Let me ask you this....

...Does your new girlfriend appreciate you talking to her about how great your old girlfriend was?

Look on Ebay for the same kit. You may see it for less.

There is lots of aftermarket junk out there. For important seals that I want to work, I only get them from Mercedes.

No. And I didn't want to offend the moderators and forum creator who put this terrific place together.

So I'm not going to mention the name or the supplier.

I got a private message from another member who recognized the kit I was referring to and they even knew the manufacturer.

He has apparently ordered the kit and I'm waiting to hear back on how it compares to O.E.M. parts from Mercedes for fit and finish.
