BMW E36 2.5i 1993 - Viscous fan coupling

I recently decided to change my viscous fan coupling as it had never been changed and was very dirty. I purchased and fitted an EIS viscous fan coupling as a replacement part which I brought from Eurocarparts which cost 28. Will this be an adequate replacement or should I go with a more expensive one or get one from the dealers?

ThanKs

The viscous coupling is a pretty straight forward device. The only issue you might have with an off brand is temperature accuracy as to where it's fully engaged and/or life of the part. You don't have to buy from the dealer to get an OEM part. Behr, Nissens, F&S are suppliers to BMW. You can look up the part number on realoem.com or bmwfans.info and then Google search to find the best supplier for your location.
