    Anyone buy parts from Mag-Engines? Any surprise duty fees for US buyers? The parts you rec'd were OEM?

    Thanks,

    Roy

    TRDshop wants $355 plus shipping. The UAE guys want $215, delivered.

    The cheapest, other than Ebay, is Amazon at $323, delivered.

    This is for a front axle actuator.

    Thats the best price I could find through a Local Toy Stealer Programme.

    Ordering via UAE Express sounds like a White Knuckle experience. Its alway Scary until its over. When its over its carnage or glory.

    Let us know how it works out.

    I will be sure to report back if I go UAE. The reviews of the seller are positive. I would just like to hear from someone in the US...if I can find such a person.

    Saving $110 on a part that I hate buying in the first place is tempting. I am a locking-hub guy.

    I ordered a RCF throttle body on eBay from a UAE seller, no issues and the part was brand new OEM.

    Counterfeit OEM parts is a billion dollar industry. Keep a look out for a small sticker that will say Made in China.

    If you want to be sure you get OEM I’d go through a dealer only. Why would some other company get better pricing on factory parts.

    There is a pretty good video on counterfeit Toyota parts, almost impossible to tell the difference unless you have the two parts side by side.

    $300 off MSRP plus no extra delivery fee doesn't pass the smell test to me. Not saying these situations don't happen, but feels like someone is/ will be taking a loss somehow. Best of luck to OP if they pursue this route.
