Default What's a better clutch slave cylinder Luk or FTE?

How's it going everybody what's a better clutch slave cylinder Luk oem brand or FTE Oem brand?
I just recently purchased a Luk clutch slave cylinder and surprisingly when I got it I opened the box and it says FTE inbranded on the side I'm pretty ticked off about this any ideas? Does FTE now own Luk or is it the same clutch cylinder?

I think I have used Luk but I don't remember. As long as it doesn't leak it really doesn't matter and you will know if it leaks.

Thanks Joe for the update I actually got some good answers from a speed shop in North Carolina that sells Luk clutch parts and clutch slave cylinders and they in fact told me that the OEM BMW brand LUK that makes clutch slave cylinders is in fact owned by FTE because Luk doesn't make clutch slave cylinders they just make clutch kits so anytime you get a clutch slave cylinder from Luk it will have FTE inbranded on the side of it which is a German auto parts manufacturer it's still basically OEM and they're good quality as well so question answered nothing to fear.
Thanks for the heads up.
