so here is some picture of a brand new part bought from a reputable dealer... and this is also why this conforts me into making my own part: Appart from a few top-quality top-dollar part manufacturers, the quality of the rest of what we buy is just garbage.
So here is a switch support plate.

how can you mess this simple piece of metal up ? Well, turns out in many ways.
straight from the box, the paint is coming off.

the embossing is not centered and not even fully applied everywhere.

It's a terrible, terrible part. and this part is not from Amazon, or the Bay, it's from one of the top european part dealer. So why did I buy this ? I did not have very high expectactions and turns out I was right. the reason why I bought this, is because I need one to replace on my car, so that the original one serves me as a TEMPLATE so I make my OWN, high quality, laser cut part.
We all know that quality is going down the drain generally on the mini scene, but common...
