Default Door panel clips w/foam gasket?

Standard ones are working fine on my case.

FWIW: I recently tried using the clips with "gaskets". The "gaskets" prevented the clips from fully engaging/opening in their holes; upon removing the gaskets, the clips worked fine.

I used the BMW clilps and bought a bag of 100 aftermarket clips with the gasket and just moved them over....I never had an issue, but they seem to fasten just fine...

I always switch out to the gasket version when I have a panel off-- have never had an issue with them.
