But own details the company produces little. For the most part this is a packer, collaborating with Greek, Italian and Polish firms in release of spare parts. The company management regularly checks quality suppliers. Buyers in reviews like that when revealing marriage, the seller willingly picks up the part and exchanges it for a new one no surcharges.

For example, his pumps cost only 1,000 rubles more than Power steering of Chinese manufacturers. But the price can be 5 times lower than the original.

We recognized the brand as the best because of the release of pumps for power steering, which give out 110-120 bars. This pressure is maximum in this node (for example ZF cannot give more than 104 bars), in comparison with other brands.
