About 3 years and 12k miles on all 4 DHCs, with Febi, on my 2001 E53. No problems at all with installation, etc. Still going strong. Highly recommended. I replaced the fronts in Feb 2017, and the rears in Oct 2017.

Bought at RM European.com. Getting them in pairs got me above the free shipping threshold, and also as I always am reminded when doing it ... by the time I order the parts, get all the exact right tools out, get all the little tricks figured out (or remembered), etc. the additional effort to do the exact same thing on the other side is not much.
2001 X5 3.0i, 190k miles, AT, owned since 2014

used a cheap Febi one on the driver side, coming up on 5 years ago, in my video:


so far so good. 5 years later, the original passenger side handle failed (180k miles) and I just replaced it with another Febi
