: Ok - having never replaced valve cover gaskets on a 94 530i I don't know what is involved. The dealer (stealer) quoted $530 for both sides. I coughed and then left. What is a realistic $ for replacement? Is this a too difficult thing for a hack mechanic who doesn't have much spare time? Thanks!

Gaskets sell for $20 a side at Bav Auto. I would do it if I were in you shoes no matter what, save $490!
