Depending on the miles I would suggest replacing the entire valve cover...I am they are on sale at ECS tuning as of now. If you go this route it comes with the 26 bolts and gasket.
Yeah, just saw the valve cover is cracked!!! on an 09? Is this at all normal?
in the first picture you can see the crack just to the right of the injector. I have already ordered the gasket, not the bolts, valve cover from bmwpartstore is $296. Now Im on a price search.
