    Tbh half that stuff isnt "fake" its just replicas, its not like they are selling them as VOLK TE37's ...... its quite blatenely Rota Grids on the label, so its just a replica item, not a fake, as for the takatas tho.... thats just shocking!!


    Stuff like oilcaps etc is just rediculas, who really gives a fuck! haha

    Rota's are genuine Rota's though

    IMO if you have the money then genuine all the way. But if you don't then replica's will have to do. I'm pretty sure alot of people think the same.

    I don't think they are saying Rota's are fake Volks


    They are just showing you the difference, so that you can tell if someone stickers them up as TE's.


    But are they saying Konig Heliums are fake CE's? Because that's bullshit
     
  16. Gunter Club Veteran ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

    it is just because people sticker them up to double their money, not that they came from the factory as fakes, just replicas.


    Im suprised how real the takatas look, especially with fia certification, i wonder if they were tested atall

    If fakes do the job well then I'll be happy buying them. I wouldn't trust any non-branded performance parts though.

    i will buy what i can afford, replica's are not fakes, and do a perfectly good job.


    rota's are rota's. they are made buy a company that doesnt claim them to be anything else but rota wheel makers, many other companies have copied designs, but no other groups whinge, just a few honda folk it seems.


    and before anyone tells me they arent good quality, i've had some shit that have buckled with ease from some very reputable companies. rota's havent buckled on me yet, and i've curbed a few.


    the takata's and the teins are just plain wrong as they can put your lives at risk, that shit needs to be sorted.


    as for mugen number plate bolts, and fake mugen number plate bolts, what sort of wierdo is gonna waste money on either, seriously they hold your number plate on, thats all.if you are proud that you have mugen number plate bolts then i'm afraid you need a girlfriend!
