    There is somebody (name withheld) that swears by Penske Parts - although I haven't dealt with them directly, I trust the individuals experience enough to steer that direction the next time I need parts. Good luck!

    Aftermarket parts would be fine, if reputable....I'm really kinda ticked off about valve seals, last year they supposedly corrected the problem, took it back almost a year later for the same issue. They kept it for two days said they went deeper and found that it was the seals even though they replaced stuff last year for the exact same symptoms, they told me it was ignition coils this time before they kept it. I replaced the coils myself and it persisted, then pulled the plugs and very much oil fouled..showed them they kept it and said it would be 5 g's....hahahahaha...don't think so....

    Are they sure you oil separator is working ok. If those fail they can draw oil from the pan into the cylinders, quite common for that the M54 engine alot more then valve stem seals.

    All sell OEM parts and non-OEM parts at different prices, from least expensive to most expensive. Sometimes one will have something you need and the others won't.

    Edit: I just checked some front underbody parts that I'm about to order from Tomkinson BMW and the same parts from Penske were WAY more expensive!
