Well here's how you do it, and when you see the condition of your old gasket you'll think: "WTF... Why didn't BMW mention this in their lifetime maintenance program?"
Nice write up and no doubt it will be useful for some that have leaks (although they may want to try loosening the hardware and retorquing it, clean it and inspect after XX miles/time if they feel lazy or have difficulty getting the new gasket), but this is not really a wear part and there is no reason why BMW would give it a second thought for the maintenance program. It's one of those "if it an't broke, don't fix it" parts.
