Ebay degas bottle

Has anybody used one of these??

Ebay degas Bottle

I'm curious about:

1-Is fitting perfect? Screw holes, hose connections, etc...

2- Is the sight glass at the right height according to the revised fill line of the OEM bottle?

i haven't used one. my biggest question would be the sight window to watch your level and i would absolutely add a gauge to one if i had it as well.
granted the cap should vent as it is a stant cap but...
i have a plastic one from swag performance on flea bay and have no complaints

The listing is by Rudy's but the pictures look exactly as every other one on e-bay, I just picked this one because it popped up first. It really is just an aluminum tank, no "rocket surgery" here but I was scalded before on simple stuff not fitting where it should.

My bottle is stock but it is cracking, not leaking yet. Although the idea of an aftermarket plastic one is not bad I always like to upgrade whatever needs replacing. I fell like an aluminum one is an upgrade, but I also feel like the brand names are unfortunately too overpriced.

Good point. But at that price I'd rather replace with another OEM
