    I got one sitting in my center console, just waiting for the wrong time to put it on I guess. The part is a cast metal and looks to be much better than the original but not as good as the BT product. The price is certainly right.

    This was brought up a while back and people were bashing for not using the BT part so put your spatter shield up because poo will fly.

    Looks like cast potmetal. It's a replacement, but if it is potmetal that could be vulnerable also. As I look at it I am concerned the whole molded arm would fall off. But it is appealing at that price. I have the BT piece, and it comes with 0 worries.

    It is, and that place that stoguy circled, is only a grinding on the casting.

    Are my eyes bugging out, or is that picture showing a broken cast aluminum one? Not a very good advertisement as it looks like a broken version of the piece in the video (46 seconds in)...

    That is some relief. That circled part doesn't look like a broken seam? I see the grind but to me I thought it was almost dip welded at a seam. I would think if they were putting a pic in an ad it would have looked like a polished turd, not one just off the assembly line. Thanks for the info, I didn't bother watching the vid.

    Not sure I would want to kill a bug with a cannon. Does it need to look so good when you cant see it?
    How much is the one from BT?

    This piece MAY work just fine but I KNOW the Billet Tech piece DEFINETLY works!. For $50 bucks or so, I am more then happy to spend the extra $30 bucks for a quality part from a quality company with a ZERO failure rate (as far as I know). I have the BT piece in both of my 300's. I'm good!

    considering the price and then include shipping......... for a few extra dollars, you could jump on a BT piece during one of the MANY specials they run for us and get the best solution for the "pink thingy" issue.

    Any chance you would have a picture of that? Just curious how you did it.
