Spacers: ECS Tuning vs. Macht Schnell vs. APEX

I am going to buy 15mm/12mm spacers, and I am wondering how these spacers compare: ECS Tuning, Macht Schnell, APEX

I'm sure they are all good and similar, but is there any quality difference?

I have a friend who is selling his ECS Tuning spacers so I can get them for cheap, but should I spend a bit more and just get Macht Schnell or APEX?

Thank you in advance.

I just ordered Macht Schnell 15mm/12mm combo today through IND. I highly recommend them as everything I have bought from them was a great customer experience!!

I can't speak for the others, but our BMW spacers are designed in house by our R&D engineering group and made right here in the good old USA. If you have any questions, as always, feel free to PM me!

I have 10 and 15mm verstrabe spacers from sonic ms, my 15s are for sale. But having the 10s on for 12k miles and lightest spacers I ever owned and cool design, I'm glad I got them.

Why not Turner spacers?

They are the way to go for spacers, IMO.

What's the weight difference between a 15mm h&R and 15mm Verstrabe ... does anyone know?
