flex disc brands

so thinking of having mine swapped out...and i know not to get uro...

but a lot of the usual retailers have meyle and febi versions.....im not always super confident in those brands ....it seems like sometimes they are good and sometimes we have to stay away from them

how about for flex discs...?

i cant seem to find sgf on the vendor sites....so other options is just to get direct from MB

also same q for the center bearing support and bushing...brand options

I've read recently that Febi is now being made in China. IF that's true, then Meyer looks the best behind Lemfoerder.

Meyle, I can understand the concern. But Febi flex discs, at least for the W220's, are made in Germany, so I'd think they'd be good.

EDIT: just saw mramay's post. I hope Febi didn't go Chinesium. My Febi flex discs, which I bought a year and a half ago, are indeed German-made.

just went thru 33 yrs of records

seems these are original flex discs...not bad...probably they are still good. LOL

as previous thread mentioned about trans leak, i guess this will also be done with trans repair or if i do a sun valley swap...
