Valve cover gasket question
 
Guys I plan on doing Vanos seals soon. I replaced the VCG about 15K miles ago (Nov 2011). Would I need to replace it since I'm opening everything up again? If not how long does the VCG usually last?

I think you'd be asking for trouble to open it up and then re-use the gasket and grommets. I would not consider it.

If in doubt - replace it.

And considering it's not an expensive part. +1 to replacing it.
