    Should febi parts be stamped febi 12th May 18 at 8:14 AM
    I ordered febi track control arms and track rod ends from mister auto so when they turned up the track control arms was stamped blueprint S2SS 7112 and S2SS 7108 but they was in febi packaging with a febi label cable tied to the arms. The boxes for the track rod ends was opened and they was stamped HTE-6275r and HTE-6275l so I contacted febi and they said they now mark them with HTE-6275r and HTE-6275l. I've now got another set of track rod ends but these are marked ADT387202 and ADT387203.

    Blueprint own Febi, or the other way around, I forget.


    Febi parts come in boxes with holograms on.

    Bit much having to check that you have "genuine" spurious parts I always think..
    I want to go back to The Olden Days, when every single thing that I can think of was better.....

    (except air quality and Medical Science )

    Febi Bilstein are regarded to be a reboxer of parts (as are Meyle).
    We may not win by protesting, but if we donít protest we will lose.
    If we stand up to them, there is always a chance we will win.
