So I recently ordered a number of parts for my 9-3s from a certain former Saab dealer in the Boston area that now runs a Saab parts business, they arranged for Orio to drop ship many of the parts directly to me.
If you have ever received a shipment from Orio, you know they use custom boxes that are pink. My wife thought I ordered her something special. She was disappointed to hear that the box was filled with Saab parts.
Everything they sent was marked as Saab OEM or in a Saab packaging, and the shipping paperwork called each item out as OEM, except one item was called out as "PPS aftermarket", (pro parts Sweden I presume) and the packaging was a generic plastic bag. It seems Orio is now dealing in aftermarket parts as well as OEM.
Has anyone else experienced this or aware that Orio is distributing aftermarket parts as well as OEM? I wonder how they work their new warrantee program with aftermarket parts? This particular item was a spring spacer for a 9-3 strut assembly, I know that the OEMs are still available as Eeuro stocks them (and I actually ended up buying the OEM version from Eeuro) and plan to return the PPS items as they did not impress me for the price.
I plan to talk with my Boston area parts supplier about all of this on Monday.
