Their website is a bit tricky due to the top saying genuine and oem but if you go to the parts list they list them as "original equipment" not Genuine VW/Audi

the urotuning is the only one i truely know of that sells OEM direct and upfront about it. Modded Euros doesnt list it on their package but the single coil packs they sell they sell them as "Genuine OEM"

Shoot, well that's a major bummer, here I was thinking I was overthinking it and asking a stupid final question and bought them from ECS and now I read this. They have the "Original Equipment" logo on the page but it's not legit?? Hopefully it's not too big of a deal as I really don't feel like doing a return. Live and learn I guess; thanks for the heads up!!

im sure they will be fine. we only know this because someone else bought them and noticed they were not stamped so they inquired ECS about it and that was their response "that they are the same just unstamped".

If ECS sells a genuine/oem part the part list states ""

im sure they will do just fine and perform at spec. I normally buy the generic version of things anyways.
