So these electrolytics looked like no-names to me. On VERY close inspection they read 105°C FR, so they are ok - apart from the wrong footprint.

Also I am used to WIMA FKPs being green and having 'FKP' printed on them, but the manufacturer obviously changed this some time ago.

Half of my trimpots are wrong version (64X instead of 64Y) and the BC327 are the -25 type only. Everything else looks fine.

Thank you, that actually makes sense. See the attached pic for the caps from the GB, so we can be sure this is the real stuff.

Panasonic went from Matsushita ltd. to Panasonic corp. a couple of years ago, the Matsushita logo would go sooner or later.

I'm going to hold out and hope that my package will be correct when it arrives, but I'm getting the feeling I should have stuck to my gut and not bought into this group buy. Missing parts, wrong footprints, wrong parts that do not match the spec on the BOM??? Sh*t happens...but wow.

These look identical to the ones I got grom Mouser for my R2 build.

I believe these are the real ones... anyway, if not it is Mouser ho we should be pointing the finger at.

The future of diy electronics will possibly become a kind of race to sort out the fakes from the genuine parts, not only bought in the bay but also from formerly trusted suppliers.

Btw, I think the supplied Panasonics are genuine (made in Malaysia) - although the datasheets are very unclear about the precise look of the parts. Maybe this is a new trick to "counter-fool" the chinese deceivers who have become very good in printing golden sleeves to fake elnas, nichicons and the like.

Group buy for the Pardise Preregulator will not suffer so much from this problem.
I learned that you can not give this into the hand of a young, unexperienced apprentice.
It simple went over your head Birger. Go back to school, learn and come back. Over and Out.

@Birger, can you please put your bills from Mouser and Digikey up here?
So everybody can see what was ordered and delivered.
