    Default 2 numberi ki intehaa

    Following two pictures are taken by me yesterday. (Don?t ask me from where I got them).
    You can see the Korean text on these filter boxes? Even telephone numbers of Korea are still there.
    From the box, it seems its 100% imported and many of us instead of buying local filter of price Rs. 200, we prefer to buy this imported one of Rs. 1400. Because this is imported & "jaynuane".

    But the fact is, this is 101% confirmed these are Pak. made filters. The boxes are even printed here.
    Picture example is only for Daewoo filters. But same thing is applicable on all the other companies also like Toyota, Honda, etc..

    It seems no one is importing the filters in actual. All this dirty job is being done here.

    Same happens with me once buying Lancer's air cleaner. The genuine are damn expensive and these crooks sell you fake products.

    Its packing.
    Filter quality itself.
    Its Price.
    Printing quality.
    the box itself.
    Etc.

    Moreover it was very well reputed shop from where these were bought and owner himself claimed that these are just local products with imported tags to attract customers.
    No one will show us the import documents even the importers. Because they also make copies here.

    The more you dig in this working, the more & more complications are found.

    Yes agreed.
    But point is that perhaps a very few companies in whole pak. are importing the oil & air filters.
    And I can bet they can never compete the price of local filters. Because after adding import cost, duties, transporation, etc. etc. the filter price becomes 4~5 times than its locally available.
    But here people are just making copies of imported filters, printing is being done here, filters are being produced here, and selling them at the price of imported. And as Xulfiqar bhai says that here people think that “imported hey to acha he ho ga”. And infact these 95% local filters but with imported writings/printings and higher price tags.

    it all depends on the shopkeepers
    they can sell 100 rupee boot for 500 saying its imported

    we Honda users use Nissin brake pads
    shopkeeper once showed me its local copy which had much more leather on it, n a pretty f9 copy
    Life is short and very unpredictable just like a Quarter mile .....
