Default ERO MKP vs Wima MKP2

I'm looking to purchase some 0.1uf Metallized Polypropylene caps for my shunt regulator power supply.

The selection comes down to two candidate:

ERO MKP1837 0.1uf 100nF 100V 1% premium grade capacitor | eBay

50pcs WIMA MKP2 0.1uF100V 5% Metallized Polypropylene audio Film Capacitors,RoHS | eBay

The price is not much different, but I was wondering whether any of you have experience on both caps.

Right now I'm leaning slightly toward the ERO, since it has 1% tolerance hence the extra that I will have in hand will be handy for future use if I need them in audio signals.

Any preference and why ?

Any other comments / suggestions / alternative brands are highly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

From UK those Wima caps look way overpriced :
MKP2D031001F00KSSD - WIMA - CAPACITOR, 10%, 100NF, 100V | Farnell United Kingdom

The ERO caps are Vishay over here, he's reselling RS stock cheaper (in quantity) than I can get them from RS:
Buy Polypropylene Film Capacitors CAP. 100V 0.1UF MKP1837 Vishay MKP1837-410-011 online from RS for next day delivery.

Have you checked Mouser, Digikey, etc. ?

Thanks for your information. I checked Mouser/Digikey Mouser carries Wima and the price is cheaper than Ebay. But they both don't have ERO.
