Top mounts

I fitted brand new meyle top mounts 5 yrs 25000 miles ago. One's failed completely, rattling around on the safety bracket.

Nuts, aftermarket bits ain't what they used to be. Popped a pair of febis on this afternoon.

"Nuts, aftermarket bits ain't what they used to be."

This is so true these days. There seems to be no middle quality level either; no bad (quality), better and best levels, just bad or bad and best sometimes. I don't mind spending more for better quality parts but also don't like getting ripped off at dealer level prices either, assuming you can even get the genuine dealer part. The challenge now days is to even find better quality aftermarket parts. It seems to be getting more difficult.
