Howdy folks,

My '03 R53 seems to have an oil leak coming from the valve cover. I have searched the threads on here but not many of them state which brand of gasket was used. Are the Victor Reinz kits any good ? Or do I need to source the gasket from a BMW dealer ?
Any recommendations/experiences are much appreciated.

I don't know about that so much but fwiw a Reinz gasket is what I'll use as a second choice after OEM generally, or first choice if a customer asks for aftermarket.

Excellent stuff guys, thanks for the replies.
As regards the rtv, I come from the MX5 community and it is recommended there when fitting a new valve cover gasket.

VR has been good since fitted. Don’t forget to do the spark plug holes as well my old ones had certainly heat cycled out.
