Valve cover gasket

I was told i have oil leak due to valve cover gasket. Do i really have to replace it or i can wait , did not get any warning light yet. Car has 105000 miles yet. Runs perfect no oil on floor. Oil level a little bit low.

Look at it. If it's leaking (and it matters) you'll see it. Then decide.

It won't hurt anything,for the most part.LOL.Oil can be corrosive to wires and sensors.Valve cover gaskets aren't that bad a job.Would consider on the n62 every seal will leak at some point.Myself I waited until I pulled the engine and replaced them all.You didn't say which engine you have.

If his sig is accurate, it's probably the N52 in the 2008 528. Easy job.
