Got the same mail and watched the video with Ronnie. Ronnie is one of the best indies in California and is the club's technical guy out there. He has many Youtube vids that are helpful for RR owners.
Hopefully the gaskets hold up.

Interesting that they're not actually MLS gaskets...

Jake, that link is just to the old type head gasket back in stock. Why do you want to fit a gasket designed years ago for a much lower non turbo engine when there is one already designed by VW for the same engine with turbo and much more horsepower. It would be my guess that VW have much greater ability to spend on engineering and development than RR/B ever had. Or is it just petty bickering by RR/B still thinking theirs is a better design?

Hello John.

I do not want any head gaskets for my car. The only reason for posting was Introcars explanation for the lack of gaskets and what had been checked before they started stocking them again.
Be honest, cannot see what they were up to as they said that none of there gaskets were faulty!

Jake.
