Distributor cap from FastLane=best buy

I like to be a well informed shopper so I went to my local parts house to check prices on a new cap and rotor.
Two things,

1.) FastLane has no competition in this town!!

2.) My local guy offered me a Bosch cap (at about $20 more than FastLane) It came in a sealed box that said "Made in Spain"

Are alot of Bosch parts now made in Spain? Are the FastLane Bosch parts from Spain? Is there a difference between made in Spain or Made in Germany?

I just received my distributor cap and rotor from Fastlane by courier today. Yep, it says..."Made in Spain" also.

Not every thing Bosch, is made in Germany. You will find that their wiper blade refills are made in Belgium. For me, as long as it's Bosch, MANN/ Mahle, Beru, Behr, Hengst, etc. it's ok for my car.
