Looks like the only place one could buy a "Hamman thermostat" is eBay. With that I would stay away.

Wahler is fine, but there was a recent thread here or elsewhere about leaking Walhler thermostats with low miles around the o-ring for the "probe" that plugs into the middle of the thermostat. There's also Behr and the connector design is different, and Behr is pretty well known with cooling components.

Personally it's a toss-up between Wahler and Behr. My Wahler has been in my coupe for the last 56k miles and there are no leaks and operation is fine.
