Re: Orio parts.... OEM & aftermarket - Saabnet.com Bulletin Board
Don't be so sure about parts coming in "Genuine SAAB" packaging - I just installed front control arm front bushing caps (a weak design) on my SAAB 9000 Aero and insisted on buying genuine parts, due to negative previous experience with the cheap replacement parts. These parts were marked "SAAB 4426003" in the casting, but came in a stapled clear plastic bag with a part number and and "Made in Norway" stickers - no SAAB markings.
I didn't mind paying seven times the price for the real thing, as I don't feel like repeating this job again in a year. Note that many suppliers, such as Eeuroparts, are now labeling Proparts Sweden parts quality as "OEM" - they definitely are not.
