Another Blau Story

Mine isn't so expensive as the others, but what is consistent seems to be the deception/incompetence.  Blau had advertised some closeout items on ebay about 6 months ago, and I bit for (2) '91 200 20V TQ distributor caps for $25, with an extra $12 for shipping.  Given that Blau is an "Audi Specialist", I didn't even think to verify whether the caps were OEM Bosch caps or not - unfortunately there wasn't a picture.  Wouldn't you know, when they arrived, they were cheapo knockoffs, with aluminum conductor elements instead of the brass ones and the bakelite was cheap/light as well.  When I called to complain - got the response that there were no returns of ebay stuff and they never claimed that the caps would be OEM.  Shame on me - I'll never trust them again.
