Silver Relay / Silver Relays

Wanted to move this here, as when I search for stuff, I usually limit it to Defender Technical Discussion, and had this over in the Wanted section with my ECU request.

Anyway,

Damn the silver relay / relays go all the time, huh? Replacing, and stocking up.

Called my local NAPA and using part AR-274 (Mercedes relay and ours are interchangeable from what I've read) it came to $17.05 total (only one in stock). Relay with 5 prongs, but they couldn't tell if it was 30 or 40A, etc.

Going to buy 4 eventually (two replace, two spare).

Are you guys all just buying them from AB still?
http://www.roverparts.com/Parts/AFU2913OE.cfm
Or britishparts.co.uk
http://www.britishparts.co.uk/.sc/ms.../RELAY-AFU2913

Or do you just go Bosch part from NAPA, eBay, or whatever?
I had read that NAPA relay AR-274 (same as Mercedes) is the same

eBay:
http://cgi.ebay.ie/Relay-Bosch-Range...item5d25082b5d

Part: Rover part AFU2913 for others who are looking.

Genuine or bosh branded metal. I buy four. Two to install, two new for spares.

Bringing this one back to life for a hot sec....

I ordered these... and they are no longer silver or metalic.. instead brown and plastic....

They look cheaply made compared to the silver ones...
am I just being stupid in thinking less of them ?

Put'em in and see if they work. I've seen every other color but not brown. Maybe they are special and will give your Rover super Poo-Power due to the color?

I will hoard all the silver bosch relays on the east coast, fuck that plastic shit. THey are probably made in china by children now. I liked to think the ones from austria were made by a smoking brunette.

I know this is an old thread, but I decided to go to a BMW dealership with my relay in hand, and had them pull it up in their system. They updated the part number, and the relay has a different #on it from BOSH: 0332014135 , but they confirmed that it is the new part, and the circuit diagram is the same. BMW part #: 12 63 1 710 726
They are also the metal top, and I found them for sale pretty dirt cheap:
http://www.bimmerspecialist.com/usa/...%20710%20726/3

The same relay was also used on Mercedes, so I'm guessing someone can do the same thing to get their PN and we can have a much larger pool to play in for these.

Had it on a battery tender in the garage for 2 weeks when I was out of town. Went to start, and no fuel pump whine. Who knows why it went.
I wasn't trying to plug anyone but the first one that came up, and pass on the info with new PN for anyone who still wanted an original BOSH relay at a cheaper price.
