Ordered Lemfoerder, got Sachs

I ordered Lemfoerder-brand strut mounts from pelicanparts.com (p/n 31306775098 for E90 ZSP), because the price is about half of what OEM would cost and I understand Lemfoerder makes OEM parts for BMW anyway.

But I received Sachs brand strut mounts. Should I care? Do they make OEM for BMW as well?

Thanks,
Howard

The oem struts are made by Sachs i think. Sachs, Lemforder, and VDO all make oem parts. You should be fine.

Make sure that they for the sports package because bmw has 2 types for non and sport and the difference will be felt once you have them installed. They both work but are different feel
