Hi all,

I ordered a Meistersatz auto trans filter kit since I had seen many recommendations for it. However, fcp euro sent me one from Rein auto parts instead.

Should I let it go back, or would Rein auto also be good?

The gasket consists of metal or aluminum on the outside and black rubber on the inside. The rubber looks fine, while the metal/alu has a weird copper/brown coloration.

Cheers

Rein is acceptable. One of the better OEM's in my opinion.

Thanks for that info! Can I get another opinion on this maybe? I am not so happy cause I really wanted that Meistersatz kit, didn't find much on REIN.

What year and model is your car? GM or ZF tranny?
Rein makes a good product but I have only used their hoses (cooling and PS).

OP has an XI, so it has the GM trans.

I’d at least contact fcpeuro and let them know about the mistake and give them a chance to make it right. They have very good customer service.

I just looked at the photos of the Meyle, Meistersatz, and Genuine BMW kits and they appear very similar.
