Mein Auto: 2001 530 SP/PP/CWP/Slush
If you're the belt and suspenders type, just suck it up and buy it from BMW. I am OK using Autohaus's unit for now. If it fails, hopefully they will take it back. If they don't, then I'll be out 52 bucks and I'll just buy the stealer's. All I know is they look exactly the same. Naturally I don't know what's inside, but it's hard to believe it's not the same circuitry, since it has to do the same things.

2001 530 Steel Blue Metallic, purchased Dec 03
SP/PP/CWP/Slushbox (I know I know)

OEM M5 bumper, 40% Huper Optik ceramic tint, Dice Silverline Pro iPod adapter, 540SP radial spokes, Zimmerman Z-Coat rotors w/ Hawk HPS pads
"Mods": driveshaft, cooling system, Vanos, CCV, PSR, VCG, FSU, spark plugs, buncha belts-n-hoses, & other things I'd just as soon forget
