However the one I replace OEM on E46, doesn't leak after 4 years so I did bit of research on E46 forum.
And what I find was Victor Reinz had lots of problems to leak and it isn't OEM.

So now I'm going to buy an OEM and will replace it this weekend.
Ha, I guess I will be doing this also.

What brand is considered OEM? The posts I read are usually "_______ is OEM" and everyone swears by it. Do you HAVE to buy one from the dealer?
