It's all about quality control, does some factory in Taiwan have the same
quality control systems in place as a genuine supplier to DC? I don't think
so and if you end up with the one in a 1000 filter that is faulty you are
going to be might annoyed.
Also judging a product by just looking at it is not a good way of testing
quality. Then again if people are willing to take the risk let them. I am
just surprised that Rusty is even thinking about selling mayfit parts from
the cheapcopy factory.
I recently bought some clear turn signal assemblies for my 123 off ebay and
they are cheap copies to say the least but there is a difference between
turn signal assemblies and filters.

Hendrik asked the tough question:
"Question is, are you willing to risk your reputation with these cheap
filters. Just because they look similar does not mean that the quality is
the same. Personally I pay a little extra to get genuine filters.
Also are you willing to guarantee these filters?"
I don't believe Rusty can be duped....
He does this for a living. He's not going to fling out a piece of crap out
there for us.
He certainly can make more money selling us the filters we're used to
buying. Why would he risk invoking our collective ire?
