Just trying to find a rocker cover gasket for my 325i and they list them for vanos models and non vanos models, spoke to eurocarparts and the guy was cluless and couldn't answer the question.

It's a 1992 K reg (first reg 06/11/92), this was around the time they changed them if i am correct, any idea what to look for to check?

Thanks

Andy

when you are standing at the front of the car and llok at the cylinder head cover (facing rad end)..is it Black like the rest rocker cover or metal?

If its metal- its Vanos.

ive taken a look and mine is metallic, but it does not have the cylindrical bit at the front, is that bit at the very front of the cover the vanos system?
