I just looked at my old FSU. Just like Bluebee's and mmm635's, mine is the same GKR stamped into the metal, and the paper sticker says BMW, GKR & Valeo (identical to Bluebee's picture).

Mind you, that is the FSU that was installed in 2003 by the dealer, to replaced the original bad one. My fan was stuck on full volume. It lasted about 4-5 years, and I replaced it with the current Sitronic/BMW in 2009.

So the GKR worked 4-5 years. We still need to see how long the Sitronic will last. But so far, it looks that it is better than most out there, as per Bluebee list.
