For those of you who have it installed, have there been any issues with it since it does not contain the small slit like the factory gasket? My car is mainly street driven so I don't foresee any issues, but I'd like to make sure.
I installed the Dorman #42072 over the summer on my 2015 ZL1 (A6) as the OEM gasket was allowing the brake fluid to leak out.
Been monitoring it closely and no leaks at all with the Dorman installed.
I cleaned the brake reservoir and the painted surface below it after installing it too.

I have run the Dorman for about 5 years, NP.

Thanks for the responses guys!!

Good to know no issues, and the gasket is holding up.
