My INDY gave me quotes to replace the E93 valve cover. Total installed cost of the OE version is $1010 and $820 for aftermarket. That's a $200 difference. Does anyone have any experience with an aftermarket cover and the results? Recommended brands?
Thanx,
Mikey

P.S. Have a happy, safe and prosperous 2019:)

It's not that hard to change the valve cover. Do it yourself and pocket $600-800 in savings. If you decide to get it done at the shop, spend $200 for the OEM valve cover. I learned my lesson by replacing the timing belt in my Toyota Camry with a China made timing belt to save $60. The belt broke 10,000 miles later that stranded me hundred miles away from home. $200 isn't worth the headache.
