FWIW, I understand. The electronics may be different. However, the symptoms are the same, the solution is the same, and even the brands are the same ... so I'll wager there's more similarity than differences.

So far, we're staying away from anything with GKR stamped on it, either in the metal or on the sticker. If it says Behr, you have to be careful as it also says GKR and BMW. Some even have FOUR brands listed.

So, it's confusing at best - but that's why we're all working together to identify which FSR brands to avoid in that thread where we took 'em apart.
