If you are going to put in the time and effort to replace the seal (or any rubber part that isn't really easy to replace), Mercedes rubber is the way to go. At least that's what I read over and over again. I hear complaints over and over again about URO rubber parts.
If you need to just quickly stop the water, perhaps a quick fix would be to add some silicone (caulk). It ain't pretty, but it often works.
My dream car is a classic sporty five speed (stick+overdrive) convertible that seats five. If, you want 70's-80's Mercedes tuner wheels, let me know.
