Personal preference dictates whether you should buy them. Your car doesn't NEED one since the turbo isn't big enough to Harm the engine without it, but the sound is nice.
As for which one, listen to some YouTube clips and pick the one that you like the sound of. I like Synapse and HKS bov sounds.

I'm actually not running a BOV but have diverter valves instead. Currently using an ER charge pipe.

The N55 has a built-in recirc valve integrated into the turbo compressor housing, what's the point of adding another? I was unaware you could add a BOV to the N55 (MAF) unless you modify the DV's. If you choose to do that, Forge DV's are probably your best bet.
