Fwiw, check out German Auto Solutions for a quality DISA o-rings sized correctly for a 325i.

Newbimer, did that Ford water pump oring work? I've read both positive and negatives about that approach.
I have a Viton O-Ring, just everything on this car is 16yo, and never did this or lower intake boot and both look so intimating and one of those scenarios that if I'm off on something when I replace there goes my mode of transportation I'm really nervous about the pin that holds the flap [emoji32]
