Scott, In my opinion something as critical as a flex disk I would only buy from the dealer. Accord to the MB of Atlanta EPC your flex disk is $112.00, part number 1264100215. Febi and Meyle aftermarket kits are around $46.00, which is where I would expect them to be compared to factory

Being made offshore isn't in itself a problem, the problem is that most Chinese manufacturers don't do much QC so a lot of crap gets through. Watch Big Clive on YouTube for fun examples. If you can force your supplier into doing QC or do it yourself they can make whatever quality level you
