Alert me when someone posts in this thread:

The same guys recently ordered me a part for my 9000 directly from Orio. They were unable to even tell what brand the part was going to be (brake light switch for my 9000). I am friendly with those gentlemen, and they even showed me the Orio ordering screen where it doesn't give much, if any, info on the manufacturer. The part that arrived was a ProParts switch, which they had predicted. So yes, Orio is selling ProParts as OEM for some of the older/more obscure parts. FWIW, the switch was identical from the exterior to the original 22 year old switch that came out of my car, and it worked fine for about 3 months before the car went into storage till next winter.
