Thermostat's brand?

Hey guys, I'm replacing my waterpump and decided to swap out the old thermostat as well. I saw there are many different brands listed for it on Amazon. Does anyone know if which brands are better quality wise? Or they're all the same? Or should I just get the OEM ones?

I suppose it depends on the brands looked at, some are probably fine, but for this sort of thing I would rather opt for the genuine part. They are all rated to open at 97 degrees Celcius as per the OE part BTW...

Thanks for the replies guys. I decided to order everything from getbmwparts for piece of mind. I'm thinking this is too important to skimped on.

Behr is the one I changed over to 11 months ago. No issues. As far as a water pump. I think I bought BMW.
