I guess theres no guarantee that hids4u or whatever UK company will send you genuine though when even Amazon etc have be known to distribute 'fake' Sennheiser headphones in the past? Admittedly not knowingly, but still...
After a quick google not found evidence of that for the Osram CBIs, and after running the eBay add through translator clearly states they are made in Germany. I guess everyone takes a risk but I'd say the seller has quite alot to loose if he's caught selling counterfit goods. I'm a bit of a Germany eBay whore though, the amount of money i've saved buying bits for my car from German eBay has paid for a years car insurance and its all been legit goods!
