Gilles Tooling rearset

i just bought a used set from ebay. Whats your opinion on Gilles? I noticed that is made from another country. Are they a good brand when comes to rearsets for 04-06?

As long as they are genuine Gilles and not some Chinese knockoff, they are top shelf stuff.

GIlles Fit and finish are excellent and so far, replacement parts are available for most models.
