Aftermarket valve cover 3.0

Has anyone had success with the aftermarket valve covers available on the internet? I would purchase OEM, but it's around $400. Wondering if I can get away with an aftermarket choice. I am replacing due to warped/cracked cover and subsequent oil leaks over and over, so I know the next step is the cover.

I went with an aftermarket one from RM European. I didnít have any issues and it came with the valve cover gasket. Be sure to get new grommets for the valve cover bolts and have the production date of your X.
