I was looking in to getting valve cover gaskets seals and seen a whole seal set Audi VW Head Gasket Set 1.8L - Elring 058198012 | FCP Euro

Now the gaskets i linked are Elring. I have seen fel-pro, Victor Reinz, ERISTIC and a few others.

I was giving the site FCPeuro from another post but where is the best place to purchase seals and what brand would you recommend. Please let me know ASAP as I will be purchasing the seals and gaskets later today.

IMO both Reinz and Elring are good gaskets and supply many different auto manufactures. There are a lot of varying opinions, but I really think it comes down to surface preparation and installation that makes successful gasket job. Two years ago all the on-line suppliers carried Reinz and for some reason all of them are now selling Elring.

FCP is a good company with great customer service, so I would be comfortable buying Elring gaskets from them.
