That looks like the gasket / seal around the valvetronic motor. I had a similar problem when I replaced my valvetronic sensor. Posts above are correct in that you have to remove the valve cover. Which means you need a new set of aluminum screws and 2 new gaskets for the valve cover. 1 goes around the entire cover, 1 goes around the cylinder holes in the middle. The valvetronic gasket if very easy to remove, just pops out with a bit of force. I agree with the poster above, either do it yourself or indy. Very expensive for BMW dealership.
