They are usually ok and great value. Main thing to check for on arrival is transit damage as they bend really easily when dropped or bashed around.

I bought and fitted one to my GTA - I'd agree with Stephen, they are good value, good quality welds etc but being ally check for damage (you can usually straighten bends out with pliers! You may also have to get the hacksaw out to modify the edges so it fits :crazy

Same here, quality is ok for the price, 2 or 3 years down the line and no leaks so far.
Dimensions were a bit off tho and it had to be trimmed to fit and the mounting holes didn't line up

Yes sizing can be a little hit or miss. As suggested just trim slightly anywhere the rad, brackets or welds looks like it might rub on the front frame.

Does anyone want to guess the import tax?

You were unlucky if you got any. The Chinese usually under declare the value or put the description down as some thing crazy and cheap. I got Conrods that were described as Xmas decorations lol
