Part copies (non-geniune)

Post by rubixcube101 » Sun Dec 09, 2012 8:59 pm

Has anyone used or had experience with a non-genuine bosch 040. There's quite a large cost difference $80-100 as opposed to $200. I am wondering if its worth the risk, or just to go genuine? Links provided, Cheers guys.

not worth it, shelve out the little bit more for genuine

well from what i've read now apparently a lot of them don't flow as well as the genuine one. It is surprising to see that infact a lot of the ones that look geniune, i.e. shipped in bosch boxes are not genuine at all. I went to AutoOne today to get a pricing for the 040 and it was $400!

So i guess i ill look into double checking that the one of ebay i'm getting is genuine, or might look into getting a walbro 255.

There are also some online stores that look geniune around the $200 mark so i might look into those.

An 040 is a truckload of pump! Even a 1/2 genuine flow pump would be overkill.
