You might want to order the OEM CCV kit from FCP. I'm agnostic about the aftermarket CCV kits. They might be fine.
If you're talking about the DISA o-ring they are available individually, just not from BMW. Same with the CCV ones. It's just a matter of measuring and finding a supplier.

Not worth it. Just buy the hoses that are OEM.

The DISA o-rings are definitely available. (GAS is the best source.)

The CCV hoses, I'm not sure about. I remember them being thinner than any o-rings I've seen available in a kit.

I tend to agree with the OEM recommendation. The OEM CCV parts aren't that great to begin with--I don't think the cheaper knock-offs are a great idea.

An update for my situation. I went to my local auto parts store and got an assortment of viton o-rings placed them on my lines today and my car runs wonderfully! Thanks for the help

Glad everything worked! I wish I'd thought to replace the o-rings with Viton when I replaced the CCV. Viton is the best material you could have in there.

So the problem was a crappy, off brand CCV system with bad o-rings?
