My old FSU for my 2002 525i also had GKR stamped on the bottom of the tab, a sticker saying GKR/BMW/Valeo, & a clock-dial pointing to 2001.

The new replacement from AutoHauzAZ (before I was turned on to sponsors) doesn't seem to be the Sitronic; but, it has been working just fine for a couple of years now ...

I snapped this picture years ago so I never did determine what brand AutoHauz sold me (and I'm not about to pull it out now as it was so hard to get in the first place!).
