Using their electrical products on my air cooled Vw,s for
~45 years with no problems at all. I wonder if Bosch make them or just
source them from some "lesser" source?. I suspect if you get any major brand
name you will be not disappointed.
That's what I am thinking. These no-name brand parts from the local
parts store are a dime a dozen made in China junk. My mechanic never
used Bosch pads or rotors but the name is pretty good. Sadly, I don't
know if they're from Germany or China. I'll report back to the group
once I install them. Cheers.
Yes, this is true. I saw odd-ball brand pads from a company called
Brake Best and I *think* they were from Korea. At least that's what
the web site showed. I think my mechanic used Wagner pads last time,
not sure about the rotors though.

My experiences with Bosch products has not always been good. Some
items are fine, others definitely not. For example, all the
windshield wiper blades have had awful rubber: the blades chatter
on the glass and even stick to it.
So, I guess that every range of their products stands on its own.
The manager of a chain auto parts store told me a few years ago
that all four of his house brake pads were identical, just
differing in their warranties.
It's awful out there.
