      We use timken at work but only on cheap shit like conveyors or small gearboxes, they get worn out in a few months, we use SKF on the expensive and hard to replace machines, SKF lasts for years, especially the ones we buy through the spare parts seller from Germany

    Some Timken parts are made in Taiwan, India, Romania, and other countries. The box will tell you where the company had it made to their specifications.
    Old rep here, what you do is this, when I needed bearings for a resto job personally I would get the part number, then go to the shelf and open every box and look at the bearing race and see where it was made. If three were hencho Mexico, others were Turkey and China, I would hand select ones made in Japan. Put the rest back on the shelf. Go to parts store tell them you need 8, open all boxes and buy two good ones. Many may not be able to do this, depending on how well you know the parts guy. Or don't tell them what you're doing, just say you need every one they have in stock, inspect and decide you only need to but these select few. I used to do that with Rotors and a few other parts as well, Raybestos brakes, I'd open rotor boxes and avoid made in Turkey or Mexico.

      smart. and yeah timken aint what they used to be. I had a timken bearing fail on my gay honda after only a year and had to replace it in a panic with a duralast (autozone was the only place in walking distance) unit that I suspect to also be failing after a few months. shit sux

        Honestly, the Duralast will be the same luck of the draw as Tinken, BCA bearings or National Oil Seals. The arrangements made behind the scenes. Many times, only the boxes are different, it's all the same stuff coming from the same places. Needed air filter other day, looked online, BMW, OE is Mann air filter. Look at OE, its pricy. Go to Autozone, find house brand, buy the cheapo 22.00 filter, open it, it's the Mann filter I wanted.Once you figure out where one manufacturer is getting their stock from, you can go direct and avoid added costs. Auto manufacturer's themselves don't make many of these parts for their cars, a lot of it made by NGK, VDO, Bosch, Denso, Borg Warner, etc.
        Once you know the original part number you can buy a VDO electric cooling fan assembly instead of buying from BMW at 3x cost for example. But yea, BMW doesn't make accessory items. None of them do. Trick is finding out what they use. Same for o2 sensors. Anything not dealer only, you should research and figure out the original number.

          yeah i drive a 90s gm, a 2000s gm and a 2000s honda so I know the oe for most of the stuff. Ive had pretty good luck of the draw with bosch for my gms. Hell i got an acdelco downstream o2 for my 90s gm and in the delco box was a bosch made in usa o2 sensor and it works great

          I don't believe that's true for BCA. I did all 4 wheel bearings on my Subaru a couple years ago with them and all of them had Made In Japan and NTN markings on them. NTN is the OE supplier for my model, so that's who I went with and they've been great so far.
