I don't think he has to worry about any loss of business on this one... Anyone stupid enough to wait 14-21 business days for shipping would never find his product as an alternative in the first place.

Absolutely, but good-luck perusing someone in Taiwan. Best thing you can do is just report him to ebay for copyright violations or what have you and get him kicked off ebay.

Yes a few companies have copied our OCC design now. Sadly copying USA made parts and having them made for less in China is all too common. There is another Chinese company who also knocked it off. Both knock offs are inferior to ours but when they take your marketing materials as well it's harder for customers to really tell the difference.

Just as offensive to me was this e90post vendor making a cheap Chinese knock off of CPE's chargepipe recently. Sad.

Not sure why you had to bring us into this, it seems a bit unprofessional to slander us on a public forum with false accusations.

As for the charge pipe, we were a bit late in the game releasing a CP, using a full 3" diameter on an OEM TB flange and that BOV location will look like a ER CP or a CP-E. There's only so many ways to bend a pipe, we gave an OEM chargepipe to our engineer, he figured out the best way to design/bend it.

To clear some things up, the "cheap Chinese knock off" we're selling is made in Taiwan.
