FS/FT Brand New M54 Valve Cover & Used Vanos
OEM Valve Cover P/N 11-12-7-512-839. Fits M54 engines manufactured after 9/2002. $200/OBO +shipping. Item is located near Erie, PA.
I just bought my first BMW and the guy told me he replaced the engine with one that came from a 2003 330xi. I ordered this valve cover and started removing the cracked one and discovered the engine was pre-'02 or possibly the original engine. So I'm trying to avoid some of the restocking fees by selling it.
Valve cover is brand new. I opened the box, saw it was the wrong one and closed the box. It comes with a new gasket already attached. I will consider trades, so let me know what you got.
I also have a vanos unit that is cracked on the sealing lip. It is cracked in the same location as the old valve cover which makes me think the engine was hit with something. Could possibly be welded and reworked. JB Weld even, if you're the adventurous type. I'll sell it cheap if anyone is interested.
