So I need to replace the heater core in my urs6.  Only Topran brand  available locally AFAIK . Can anyone advise whether they have had any issues with theirs? Tossing up whether I should go genuine for a longer lead time and another $100.
Cheers

going genuine over topran is always recommended.

I've used topran only because that is all that made parts for my mk2 or mk3. If I could have any other parts, I would have preferred. I'm not seeing sufficient reliability in my case.
But if there are no other options, use topran and expect to be replacing parts more often than compared to the genuine part.

Never had a single issue with Topran parts, quality is fine for the price.

Thanks for the feedback - I'm going to take a chance on the topran one. Fingers crossed I'm not replacing it again in 2 years...
