VANOS Solenoid Replacement

I think I'm looking at replacing my VANOS solenoids. Any recommendations for which ones to purchase? Are the Mini OEM solenoids worth the 2x premium in cost? Or should I just get whatever from RockAuto?

Right here: 11368610388 is the oem part number. You can trust our parts and if you have an issue we are here. I would just watch out on rock auto they confuse the Gen 1 and Gen 2 MINIs all the time on part-year overlaps. They get their info from data dumps and it's not the cleanest. At one point they had all the gen 1 Valeo kits under 2007+ R56 MINIs, people kept ordering and posting up they got the wrong clutch. So just be careful.

I bought aftermarket replacement solenoid for two of my 09MCS, so far so good, both more than a year old.

Yep, just make sure you get the updated unit with the screens. The older part units that other people might sell might not have the screens, it needs them to protect the system from crud and stuff

Thanks guys. I just ordered these:

I've been getting a random exhaust VANOS code in the morning for first start of the day, so I'll replace that one first. If this helps, then I'll be replacing the intake one.
