The gasket in the first picture you posted is the right one. Although it looks circular, you will need to insert the gasket in to the slot (kind of oval shape).

Look at the attached picture - look closely, the gaskets are inserted in to the slots in each of the intake port.

Thanks for the response!
By the way, is the manifold in pic' from N52 motor?
The reason I am trying to remove manifold is to replace the entire CCV system.
Seems like it got a volt-on CCV hose which I didn't expect it to be.

It is said to be doable without taking manifold off but I just wanted to do the job easy and decided to remove it.
All the parts are now on order :o)

Thanks

Yes, that picture shows the intake manifold and oil separator on N52. My car is 530i. I believe the intake manifolds are slightly different on 530 vs 525. 525 intake has only single or dual stage intake while 530 has 3 stage intake. However, the intake manifold ports (that mate with engine) should be the same.
