[BiturboS4] Aftermarket BPV, are they worth it?

I've had issues with the dealer on aftermarket valves.  For some funny
reason they believe the Bosch ones are better and should stay in our
cars, even though they had to replace many in the S4 and Tot's.  This is
from my dealer.  Every dealer will argue differently, depending on the
knowledge of the service department.

I think this would depend on how anal-retentive the dealer service dept
Some dealers are pretty cool, while others are downright nasty.
