There are a lot of items that should be sold in pairs but are sold individually to show a lower price! When they list "1 unit" it will generally mean just one even if the picture shows otherwise.

Nice catch I can rest easy knowing that my cheapiness has not failed me lmfao. I guess you really have to read the fine print and like you said assume a loss. I would feel ok purchasing little things from this site but something big like say a Golf R bumper i would question. Even if they did send it to you would it be in one piece?

Dude, last I checked hondas are made in japan, not china...probably why they dont break. Sorry but I couldnt resist.

Back on topic, sub'd to see what other goodies people can find. Probably wont be ordering anything electrical, or costlier (as in terms of the prices on the site) items like bumpers and whatnot till someone posts up how they stand the test of time. But lower costing items that have less of a tendency to fail like the non slip ashtray cover, dash cubby and euro cup holder id have no prob buying.

Best of luck to those buying costlier items, I hope they hold up for you and dont crap out. Anxiously awaiting to see how they hold up.

Imho I don't care where the item was made. It makes no difference, it's all about quality control. Look at all the Apple devices; iPhone, Macbook Air, Etc. those are all made in China. Also consider the fact that some items are made in china and shipped back to Italy so they can stamp "Made in Italy" on it. You could have items made in Japan and it could be pure junk. Most people are just used to the stereotype of what country makes things better. The true test of quality comes with the use of the product.

I agree with you about quality control, but thats hard to do in china where theres so many people there working for less than a dollar an hour. Cheap money good price, you know? But me quoting him was mainly because his post made it seem like he thought HONDAS were the only thing that CAME OUT OF CHINA that didnt break.

Back on topic:

http://www.buychina.com/items/jsk-go...e-b-qypqupkjmh

Anyone else notice that "jsk tuning" has an identical logo and phrase as ecs tuning lol. Oh the things you can find on buychina lmao
