(2) a high quality motor shaft that meets your approval.
Which is right or wrong?
I think they are both ok but 'meets with' is the most commonly used.
Phoenix PRBut now I'm thinking, why include the phrase "high quality"? A motor shaft that meets with one's approval is assumed to be of high quality? Why would you approve a motor shaft of low or middling quality? So, my suggestion to simplify the sentence:Yes, the whole thing is overwrought, but if we are to simplify, I'd suggest:
Should you have the expertise (and a good car repair shop at your disposal) to test yourself such motorshafts:
I know that you want a motor shaft that meets with your approval.
Should you NOT have the expertise to test yourself such motorshafts:
"I know that you want a high quality motor shaft."
I trust that meets with your approval.
