M54 Oil cap seal

Over the last year ive noticed an oil spot shadow on the beauty plate just around and beneath the oil cap nothing major.

https://bimmertips.com/bmw-valve-cov...ket-ring-seal/

While thumbing threw eBay...I found the rein fill cap rings. They were cheap considering. Guess they were a deal 5bux.
Anyways delvery was made...the rings were very plyable? Almost flimsly? The current rings were not but remember they (3) are 14 years old or better. I made the install, two without taking the cover off. Can't see how the seal is made...but no problems or wet spots on the beauty plate as of yet.
I'll test run the other two later today. Oh! I kept the original 3 on hand just in case.
