NGK Branded DI Cassette?

Anyone had any experience with the NGK branded DI Cassette? I see they are offering one for a little bit less than the OEM ones, and being NGK I'd be more inclined to trust it than the $65-100 chinese specials.

With absolutely zero experience with this specific part, I can say that I have never gotten a bad part from NGK. I'd trust it. What's the warranty?

Warranty is 3 years, same as an OEM one from saab parts depot. I ordered one from rock auto, it ended up being about $15 cheaper than an OEM part.

I know people are going to say "for $15 why not just get an OEM one?" And I don't disagree. But we've seen shortages of the OEM cassettes in the past, and I'd like to know there is an aftermarket part that is actually reliable and readily available. Putting one of these on my jzw tuned 9-5 should be a good test for it.

Form Rock auto 15 including shipping ( I think I would get more rock auto parts if shipping was free

Keep us posted on how it works out

Update:

I received it today, and it's an SEM/Made in Sweden DI Cassette with Saab OEM stickers, and an NGK logo engraved on the bottom. 100% g2g as far as I can tell.

I saw These when I was looking for cassettes for my 900, but found a brand new saab unit on ebay for <$150.
Good to know that it showed up as a SEM!
My 9-5 is starting to throw P1300's, with a relatively new SEM cassette.

The date code on the casting is 11/2017. I ordered the last one they had last night for my parents 9-5 lol. I'll get pictures of the stickers when it shows up.
