fxm911Hopefully someone with more knowledge on Porsche parts manufacturing/sourcing will jump in but I believe Genuine Porsche Relays use to be stamped with the part number and ''Made in Germany'' below it as per this picture : It is entirely possible that these are now produced in China, why not and doesn't always mean bad product, but all genuine Porsche parts I have purchased to date, from either an OPC or independent sellers have always come in Porsche branded boxes, not plain unbranded ones so I do find this a little surprising as well....
hotfrog1Many thanks for the replies. As I am not convinced, I have emailed Porsche GB with a photo to ask for their opinion. I have not identified the retailer.

It will be interesting to see what reply you receive. The fact that these come as ''made in China'' does not worry me that much, they are more than capable to produce very good quality parts.The main issue could be that you may have the proper ones commissioned by Porsche to be manufactured at a certain plant in China and that various good suppliers will source from, but could also have a Chinese production line running in parallel with ''cheaper'' versions being produced and then sold as "Genuine" ones (it happens all the time unfortunately).Keep us posted
