Valve Cover

Post by RLacey » Wed Jun 06, 2018 11:20 am

Good morning,

So i have been misfiring really bad then if i accelerate a little hard it will go away untill i turn car off. Looked at my plugs and oil on the threads so i am 90% sure its valve cover/gasket, she's on 85k. Now looking on bimmerworld.com i can get a genuine bmw valve cover/gasket kit for around $440 but they also do a aftermarket one for around $200 cheaper. What would people go for and why?

Any reviews of both would be helpful. Only asking as BMW parts are sometimes not worth it and just a rip off.

Thanks in advance
