My Ride: 2005 325i Sport 5spd
I tried this as well on my X5 3.0 and 325i and I had the same probs even after cleaning out the recess very very good with a surgical pick and an xacto knife. Upon reinstalling and lubing up with some white lithium grease, it still didn't sit flush in the manifold. I was still able to see the orange from the o-ring and after tightining in a criss-cross manner, it started to bend the disa valve towards the rear (top) bolt. Instead, I picked up this: and it fits like a glove. $4.25 shipped for 5 Viton pieces!
