I'm looking to replace one or both of the DSC brake pressure sensors on a 2004 320d E46. Are there any non-BMW parts recommended?

Ebay has lots of cheaper alternatives, does anyone have a known good supplier (ebay or otherwise), and not one of the Chinese copy parts?

Chinese copy is a no go. I was hoping for someone that has used "x" brand or seller a few times for good parts.

I think they are about £60-£70 each, but the car needs a few other expensive parts to get it through the MOT. If it has to be BMW then it has to be, I know for some parts on other cars I've always go OEM (or bosch etc directly).

I bought a fleabay alternative 2 years ago for 40 quid. Bosch equivalent was well over 100. Anyway, the pattern part has been fine ever since, meanwhile the other original pressure sensor is still going strong at 15 years old!

Having said that, I once bought a low cost front disc and pad set from a fleabay shop, the quality was appalling. Poor stopping force then one disc warped within a few months. Replaced with textar pads & mintex discs, difference was night and day.

In terms of quality there's always a small risk with low cost pattern parts, in my experience.
