Im in the market for a new starter. I am debating on getting the original denso starter vs the knock off versions, that is cheaper. Has anyone dealt with the copy at all? If so, what are some of the cons? Is spending the extra money worth it?
You go to DB and get a $90 Chinese "Denso"
You go to Amazon and get a $300 Nippondenso Denso
Are all those in-between, $179 starters just marked-up $90 starters?
I know you can get an Auto Parts Store, Chinese, cheap starter with a Lifetime replacement for less than the real thing BUT,,,, you get stuck in a Parking Lot, in the middle of the night during a rainstorm, and you're gonna feel PennyWise/PoundFoolish
