I originally was going to have these put on my car. They didnt get finished in time, so i couldnt use them when i got my seals replaced. These were sand blasted then powder coated red. They look great. I will try this again someday. Just want to get what i spent on them.

$750 usd shipped anywhere in continental U.S. via fed ex ground.

I'm guessing these were used when powder costed? Any chance they're warped?

I got these from a very low mileage 2012. I checked to see if they were warped before sending them out on a flat steel bench. Perfectly straight.

at that price it is almost a steal. The prices of valve covers on the 2nd hand market are going up fast as they are becoming harder to find in good condition and many people are needing to replace their seals about now.

I will be selling another set once completed and they will be going for a bit more than your original asking price, not including shipping.


Good luck with sale!

New ones are still available and recommended as the magnesium chips/pits over time and won't allow the VC to seal properly. If you look inside the groove where the valve cover gasket sits, you can see the pitting and no matter what you do, the gasket won't seal right. We've done close to 30+ VC jobs on S65's and 1 out of 2 needed the covers replaced due to pitting.

Ive refinished about 20 sets so far and if you follow Dean from MPorium using Drie Bond 1209 or similar inside the gasket ridge you have no issues at all.

Yes new ones can be had but roughly $1200 a set and with time you will again face the same thing of it bubbling and flaking as the coating BMW uses sucks at best!


and just for those that are looking IND sells their used covers for $1220 and newly coated ones for $1800. Again this is a good deal if the color is your thing!

So your saying that 15 out of the 30 you have done failed?
