i received my pricey clutch, pressure plate and throw out bearing today from Wolfsburg West. I bought the "German OEM" versions, but they are labeled SACHS.

Are the Brazilian versions labeled as such?

Looking forward to this crazy swap...

Look at the boxes for country-of-origin and any stampings on the parts themselves like industriadebrazilia.
"Oh, well, you see, Sachs makes parts all around the world."
"But your website said 'German'."
"Yeah, well Sachs is a German company, the quality control is just like they came from Germany.'
"Yeah . . . . . . . right . . . . "

As per the box:

Clutch and Pressure Plate - Made in the Slovak Republic
Throw Out Bearing - Made in Germany

So, OK, the correct continent, at least...
