All bow to Bosch for listening to their distributors!
Since the very early days, the insanely popular 044 racing spec fuel pump has been a big target for counterfeiters all over the world. We reported it to Bosch quite a while back now and it’s nice to finally see action being taken to fight fake Bosch fuel pumps on the market.
With more and more brands adding these security features to their boxes, it makes for a great combat to many unknown, dodgy businesses who love putting vehicle owners at serious risk, just for the sake of their own pockets. Bosch has developed a website purely for confirming authenticity of their products, where you simply enter the code on the seal for confirmation.
The Bosch Protect Assistant
To guarantee the authenticity and integrity of Bosch products, selected Bosch packages are provided with authenticity seals. By inspecting the seals and entering a security code our partners and consumers may verify product authenticity at any time. Protect your vehicle from the risk of damage by fake products and support our initiative against brand piracy by entering your query. Your online authentication enables us to contact you in the event of any questions arising in conjunction with cases of brand piracy that have been discovered. Your assistance contributes to our preventive actions designed to protect vehicle owners. Thank you very much!
