Unipart are not specifically franchised here, the German marques are best represented in aftermarket but it's not a quality driven process, just "option B" when people get quoted $800/pr to supply and fit genuine discs for example. Recently had an issue where a C-Class needed the OSR brake sensor replacing - aftermarket price (trade) $270, Fleabay UK $35 for Chinese. I don't foresee the Chinese one lasting only 1/8 the life of a Febi part, so it was a no-brainer.
I've batted hard for OCAP suspension parts, but they're not well represented out of Italy.
Trouble with ECP is they're going to skewer themselves in the end with an excess of complaints and poor quality items. They can only ignore reasoned criticism for a finite amount of time...

I may have to "swallow my knob" on this one got another arm, on starting to remove the old one the 18mm head bolt on the front mounting was loose to undo, had a word woth my local Citroen indepenant, and it is quite a common thing tighten up to manufacturer rec torque and they work themselves loose. I tightened it back up and gave it an extra 1/2 turn and hey presto no more noise. mind you after trouble with front wheel bearings rfailing within a year I am very wary of ECP!!!!
