False Advertising or is it just me?

So I am looking to get some Autometer gauges and this is what I came across. Diesel Power Products is selling ProParts Gauges as Autometer. Am I missing something or is this a ProParts gauge? Does Autometer own ProParts? If you look at the websites both advertise the same gauge.

Autometer Spek Pro Boost Gauges 2 Pressure Ranges

It looks to me like ProParts is a retailer that deals exclusively with Autometer gauges. Nowhere on the ProParts website does it claim to sell the "ProParts Spek gauge". Rather, all gauges are the Spek Pro Gauges, there are links to Auto Meter and the Auto Meter Custom Shop at the bottom of the webpage, and on the Autometer webpage, one of the style of gauges that they sell is the Spek Pro series.

Doesn't look like false advertising to me.
