Just got mine. Crazy part was that my cap was missing the o-ring completely. Installed the new Viton one:

Have 9 more to return the favor. PM me if you want one... preferably in the US.

Weird but...I replaced mine with an OE o-ring shortly after I bought the car in 2012. I have opened/closed the cap many times. No leaks. I'm not convinced these special o-rings are needed. But then again, I got a Wednesday car. Window regs still work, blower resistor still original and working fine, no cracks in the chassis at the subframe, no rust, no problems. I'm just not seeing the litany of issues others are seeing with my E46. Hooray! Purdy dang good for a BMW.

Furthermore, does one truly need to scour the planet trying to source an o-ring for a power steering cap? Like I said. The OE ring seals just fine!
