Several threads on this topic if you search.
It's my understanding that there are 2 manufacturing facilities for glyco bearings, the ones from Porsche are made in Europe, the OEM ones are made, I think in South Africa if my memory serves me correctly, the ones from Porsche are much more costly than the oem ones but should be to spec, given the previously known issues with the eom ones I wouldn't go with them.
