Valve Cover Gasket Replaced (M52 Engine)

Hey Folks,

I'm sure there are plenty of DIY's around the web but I really enjoy viewing topics like these so decided to share mine. Made a few calls to see who actually had this gasket set in stock and finally one place was able to get one within an hour. The bad news was though the guy at the counter ordered the wrong part. He brought out the M44, 4 Cylinder gasket set and for some reason tried to convince me it was the one. After double checking on his computer in front of me he realized that he had been mistaken. Thankfully the driver was near the warehouse and all of it was close to the store so I only ended up waiting 10 - 15 mins or so.

Got back home, had a slice of Pizza and got everything organized to begin the work on my 97 328is (M52 engine) valve cover gasket(s). Over all the job took me about two hours from start to finish (all cleaned up). Here are the images taken at each stage of the project:
