    Value cover gasket at 47,600 miles

    Just got my 2006 e90 330i from the shop. Valve cover gasket needed replaced at 47,600. I'm glad I have the CPO warranty. $50 is must better that $695 for the repair.

    Of course the $695 charge is an

    inflated charge from a dealer. DIY's here describe the job as much shorter than that. There may be some honest BMW dealers when it comes to billing by the hour, but buyer beware in most cases.

    The dealer in Savoy IL is one of the best in the country. I would put Twin City BMW up against anyone dealer. These guys really try to meet the customers needs.__________________

    I would imagine it's considered std wear/tear.

    So far the repair seem to be perfect. After 500 miles the gasket is holding strong. __________________

    Re: Value cover gasket at 47,600 miles

    I also needed a valve cover gasket at 48K on my '06 325. It was covered under warranty in full. I may be an exception in that the dealer found 2 of the 16 cover screws broken, (could only conclude that this happened in production). Needless to say, they were embarressed by this. The solution was a heli-coil kit that came from BMW, because of this the repair took almost 2 weeks to complete. Inskip BMW (RI) provided a BMW loaner at no charge during the entire time. After 8K miles there's no oil leak, everything is fine. I imagine that BMW is aware of this issue. My advice is to watch for leaks, I found mine with just a visual inspection.
