At this point, the problem seems to be your perception. Do you have any evidence that Bosch is not ensuring the quality of its parts made in China, to their design and specification?
There is only one reality.My perception is my reality.
In my experience, the issue is that almost all companies have cost-reduced the quality from their products. Buying a "reputable" brand often doesn't help. The cost-reduction / profit increase is achieved by both design changes, and manufacturing in cheaper countries. I think that the former is the bigger issue, and can create quality issues that are often blamed on the manufacturing country, e.g. specifying (cheaper) parts with less exacting specifications.I hope that Bosch maintains the level of quality anywhere they produce but I stand by my prior statement that more often than not many of the things made in China are of poor quality.
Meanwhile, you're typing on a keyboard made in China with a computer with dozens of parts made in China connecting to the internet using a router made in China, looking at a monitor made in China, etc etc etc.My perception is my reality. I hope that Bosch maintains the level of quality anywhere they produce but I stand by my prior statement that more often than not many of the things made in China are of poor quality.
I drive a paradox. I have a Mercedes (good, German car right?) but it was made in Alabama (Americans make crap cars, right?).Since I am a physician let me ask would you prefer an artificial heart made in the US or Germany or one made in China?
There are parts from China in it though.......and thank goodness our McLarens are NOT made in China because then there would be all kinds of problems with them.
Just an FYI, China can make stuff just as good as Germany, Japan, or the US. China makes iPhones and Apple products, do they not? You get what you pay for. If you get a shit part out of China, it's because you wanted a shitty part. If you want a premium part in China, you can pay for that too.
Both the parts I've ordered had labels saying "Made in the United Kingdom". I saved the labels with my service records, I don't think I've ever seen that on a car part before. Of course, you get what you pay for, the plastic cap for the frunk liner bolts is $51 with tax....And here we are driving a British car… no mention of “made in England”.
