Some seals and gaskets are not covered on extended warentee, I know that the one I was offer and bought thru carchex was not covered and why I went ahead and dropped them and got my money back.

I strongly agree that this item should be recalled by in my case I replaced the tube and gasket with the more advanced AGA pipe, and I am sure that this repair even I'd recalled will not be covered. My repair cost about 2300.00 and the way BMW has to repair the car will cost way over 8k because they have to remove the heads to install a new pipe into the block.

This is a huge problem with all n62 engines including the x5 and some range rovers that used this BMW design.
