Bit of change of tack, but I was very surprised when on a Ducati factory tour earlier this year the guide informed us that only 2 items were made by Ducati themselves, One was the crankshaft, I think the other was cams, but don't quote me. That certainly bears out your post rick_lee.


Almost all automotive manufacturing is supply chain based - as suggested, find the source and youre fine - the big issue is cheap or unreliable pattern copies, or worse still fake brands (Brembo have fallen victim to this quite badly)

the BMW OEM filter is made by MAHLE and is available on amazon here in the US for $9.69 (prime). Ive ordered a few now from there, prior to that I got them from the dealer only to find out these are exactly the same items... Amazon FTW!
