OEM or Optima is the poll if i go for new ones, for sure i would go for the OEM, but how to know if that is really the OEM, what signs i should look for, is it really OEM or some China copy?

p.s. I think for all Alfa owners in UK, if they can, they should drive to Macedonia, and rebuild everything on the car, for a much cheaper price When i see how much they charge for something i go like
7 euros for labour , it's about the equivalent of 50 over here!

I've always used EBSpares for all of my required Alfa parts.
They are generally cheaper than going to Alfa, but you are either getting OEM items, or very good quality non original items. Their service is excellent, and they have always had what I have needed in stock.

They are also happy to take unrequired items back and issue you a credit note.

Great service, quality parts, and a no quibble returns policy.......I'd never use anyone else

EDIT:I've just checked the sealed bags that my lower wishbones came in....TRW.....what a MASSIVE saving over going straight to Alfa
