alibaba and cowl vents

In shopping for a supplier for four 4" 316 SS cowl vents I came across some listed on Alibaba, for around 1/3 the price of the ABI ones listed here in the US. Has anyone ever purchased some off of Alibaba, and how did it go, and how did they turn out? I need new one as my old plastic ones are just scrap.

Re: alibaba and cowl vents

Alibaba is an import company that sells wholesale . I just looked at those and minimum order is 10 pieces. You might want to get a group together to order unless you're planning to resell some.

Re: alibaba and cowl vents

What's their price and shipping? I am interested in a pair, but wonder if freight would kill the price appeal...
