 Check the archive.  Or read the list occasionally.
 
 The opinion is Run!!!  Run away!!!
 
 URO products would not be worth it if all you had to pay for was
 the shipping.

Oooh, if the TV fails you can use the lens to make the lens of death or a 
solar cooker, whichever you prefer. :)
A friend of mine got his up over 700F (the limit of our measuring technology) 
on an average New England spring day.

I have a MIJ Mitsubishi 65 projection TV I got from FreeCycle for free. I 
watch maybe an hour of television a week (OTA), not including youtube snippets 
of PJ TV, Truth Revolt Originals, and Mercedes Source stuff. What does that 
have to do with cheap, inferior Chinese parts...?

I've been looking on the Inet for a replacement multi-purpose stalk for my '84 
300D and have found prices for new units at ~ $50 (URO) - $150 (OE).  Since it 
may be awhile before the weather warms up sufficiently for a PNP visit, what's 
the list's consensus regarding URO products?  TIA.

They're junk. They're so bad that the URO reps have been run off most forums.
Fortunately on a 123 the stalk is relatively easy to replace because if you 
intend to keep the car you'll be doing it again. 
The bitter taste of poor quality lingers long after the sweetness of the cheap 
price - Ben Franklin.

Get a used one from Kaleb or LKQ Auto, or on ebay from a reputable seller.
