Not specifically with the ones for our cars, but I have had the (mis)fortune of dealing with them on customer cars (collision shop).
If you just need something there, they're not bad, but they are not as "clean" as the OEM pieces, and typically the bracketry is considerably lighter than the OE stuff. They also often arrive damaged.
IMO, keep shopping for a good used OEM piece. They seem to turn up in the classifieds pretty regularly here on the site.
