My Ride: '99 328i 300K miles
Last time I was in the auto parts store, I started reading all the rtv labels...they all vary greatly in temp resistance, oil contact, sensor safe, etc....

Ultra black, according to the unopened container I'm reading right now has:

Maximum oil resistance
rtv silicone gasket maker

High temp formula--up to 500 F

Fast curing

Low odor/noncorrosive

Sensor safe

Not to be used as a personal lubricant.

Assemble parts immediately. Finger tighten, allow to dry for 1 hour, then retighten 1/4-1/2 turn.

Dries in one hour, fully cures in 24.

Don't use it on head gaskets or parts contacting gasoline.

Sounds good to me...I might follow your diy hope it all works out for you!
I'm so depressed. No one wants to come see me in NYC: Sat, Oct. 8, 6 p.m. at Greenwich Village Comedy Club.
Mangofy your E46!
