So a bit misleading, but after looking closely I think you are right. Thought I found a good deal.

Thanks for the heads up! Post yours up when you get it, I want to see what it looks like. If it has the black plastic housing on the back of it, that is not the one you want. I don't think it will though.

Hope this helps.

Since they are actually still readily available, why not.
Yes, sir. Why not.

I've been collecting new oem parts, and I recently realized that new parts still age (oxidate?) after the production time, over the course of years, even if they're BNIB. I've been learning to get parts from reputable suppliers that have good inventory management for stocking newly manufactured parts (fresh parts) and be available w/ fair price. (Instead of buying new oem parts randomly from online sellers for cheap.) It's because certain parts, i.e. made in rubber & plastic, have more higher demand to be reproduced / remanufactured because of the associated level of consumption / corrosion. Fresher ones are out there, but poorly old ones can also available for cheap, stocked up, collecting dusts.

Well, this is of course if you're trying to get most out of the new oem parts you get for fairly an old car I suppose, but this can also reduce the risk of parts' premature failure imo, especially belts 'n hose components. Maybe the risk is low, but I'd like to stay away from taking risks in general.
