DON'T BUY!! DON'T GAMBLE!!!!!!! GO OEM BMW. I bought this stupid cover here on Amazon for my 08 BMW E90 328xi. Just days After install I got massive engine oil leak causing massive smoke from the engine bay. Cover was installed properly and torque to spec. However, These aftermarket covers can't handle the heat from the engine and they would expand causing massive engine oil leak right onto the cat resulting in massive smoke which can eventually lead to an engine fire if you don't pull over immediately and turn off the engine too cool off.
OEM valve covers are made in Austria and of the highest quality, specs and materials. These ones on Amazon are from China, I am a proud Chinese by the way, but for a 1/4 of the price from the OEM ones, don't be naive to think that they will perform the same under high pressure and high heat!! You get what you pay for!!! I am sure China can manufacture covers in the same quality as OEM ones but then what's the point when it will cost much more.
I learn my lesson!! DON'T BUY!! DON'T BUY!! DON'T GAMBLE AND BE STUPID LIKE ME!! GET OEM BMW covers. THIS IS AN ENGINE VALVE COVER not a bumper sticker or a front lip or a shift knob etc etc that you can get on Amazon or Alibaba for dirt cheap and doesn't really matter. THIS IS AN ENGINE VALVE COVER!! THERE IS SAFETY CONCERNS FOR YOU AND YOUR PASSENGER!!
