Wasn’t aware Porsche did branded plugs Dont know but I can’t believe anyone would buy them if they did, can imagine they would be charging 2 or 3 times the price! Just stick with the tried and trusted brands can’t go wrong!

Outrageous nooo Still don't understand why anyone would walk into an OPC to buy a set of spark plugs. Dont know

As DeMort says, many Porsche parts are outsourced, like all manufacturers, and lots of parts are common to other brands. Track rod ends are made by TRW, the only difference is the branding is ground off and in a different box, Design 911 prices - TRW £26.98 +VAT (£32.38 ) so called Porsche £81.68+VAT (£98.02) Surprised - You can get the TRW ones on eBay for around £26 including VAT!

We used to have a thread on the Ducati forum for parts that were common to other vehicles but significantly cheaper, eg. oil pressure sender was common to something like a Fiat Punto, Ducati part around £20, Fiat part £5! Would be useful to have a similar thread on here!

Is it true that other than the branding, the genuine parts are identical to the same part made by bosch, lemforder, textar etc etc

997 droplinks ledoforder with the Porsche parts symbol partly ground off £23 each.
Beru coil packs set of six from ECP £130 exactly what Porsche supply.
944 timing and balance shaft belts £150 from opc, £48 from local factors, both made by Gates.
Best on is the flywheel sensors for my 944 turbo, Bosch parts £200 each from Opc, £174 from ECP, turns out the ones for a 6 cylinder BMW used as cam position sensor exactly the same the the lead is an inch or so longer.
Bosch dealer in Preston sold me 2 for less than £80.
Throttle position switch again 944, same bit from Bosch fitted to Volvo 740 and the like, liberated one last time I was in the scrapyard, near enough £200 at Porsche..........shop around.
Pork chop buy from Porsche then mark up, this is why Porsche are usually cheaper than them.
puh
