Is Accu-fire really the "best quality upgrade" for Opels?

Consider some of what is said on Amazon reviews about the EMPI #00-9432-0 by VW owners:

"Not real pleased with this I got it all installed and the motor keeps cutting out and the coil was getting extremely hot so I took it out and put the points back in and it run fine."

"It was bad when I got it. I went back to points."

Even a positive review couldn't entirely endorse these:

"These are great, but we have to change them about 1 time a year"

This is similar to the account of an owner whose Opel didn't run well after installing this kit, who had to take his car to a shop where the mechanic found the module was triggering 15-20 degrees off of where it should. You can read client's warnings about the Accu-Fire by searching online for yourself.

How about some comparative evaluations of air filter kits?

One example is the EMPI #9025 knock-off air filter kit, about $20 as sold for installation specifically on Volkswagens.

The filter is described online as being "generic" in quality, and in person its "chrome" is so flimsy, it bends on contact.

So for purposes of tech discussion, can we ask if it is wise, to advocate installation of non-factory Weber parts of questionable quality, onto our Opels?

#22. There is also a rear trailing arm bushing set available. Easy install two piece with metal sleeves. Fully grooved, anti-squeak protection built in. A great upgraded set. Does both front and both rear on the trailing arm set. 12 piece kit $99.95.
