In Reply to: Bruno, James, John, Roger et al - canister (long) posted by Adnan on August 01, 2001 at 23:48:33:
Part number for the canister is 11 42 1 720 690, without oil cooler connections. The gasket is 11 42 1 722 688.
I bought mine at Pacific BMW in Glendale, CA. Cost was $269.40 and $1.28 for the two.
I don't know what the M5 uses, will check the ETK (somehow I doubt it will be the same even though the blocks are similar).
