I totally agree with the OEM quality, since there are so few Metros, Mini's, MGF's and TF's left on the road using these ball joints (and similar wearing parts) I believe there are probably only a couple of manufacturers supplying the entire market. Ball joints require more engineering and machining than for example an air filter, whereas you almost make an air filter on the kitchen table with a balljoint you will need sophisticated machine tools. Febi and Blueprint are part of the huge ZF empire, they manufacture every thing from axles and gearboxes for earth movers to gearboxes and shock absorbers (Bilstein) for cars. Also beware one supplier trades as "OEM Quality" which is just a company name and "Continental Direct" has no link to the Continental Tyre company that owns many brands including ATE brakes
