    Question OEM VCG's

    Greetings!
    Got a parts question; Where's a good place online to purchase oem vcg's (other than a dealer) for an e39 M62? Has anybody had a good experience with an online store?
    Much thanks in advance

    If your going to do the valve cover gaskets you should do the upper timing cover gaskets too. There's Elring, victor rienz.

    After holding an OEM vs a factory gasket for my E36, I'd never go for anything other than factory. There was no comparison. I had to replace my OEM gasket bc it wasn't sealing. the factory gasket was twice as thick and I felt it compress and seal as I tightened the fasteners. Is there a huge savings or other reason not to go with factory?
