Hey guys....I getting ready to change out the VC Gasket on our '07 X3 3.0 si and have a couple questions if any have done this before.
I have changed this on my '05 330Cic but that is a different engine (M54). This X3 has the ALL new N52B30O1 engine (Alum/Mag casting)
1. Do the Valve Cover screws need to be replaced?
BTW, Pelican has a nice write up on this. They say to check screws with a magnet & replace any that are not steel. I'm just curious if they are all aluminum or just some; and which ones? Then again, that might be a BMW thing where some say you don't need to except in places like the electric water pump. Curious what the forum says.

Reference my DIY post for VCG change in Bimmerfest.
