This head gasket set for E46 M3, MZ3 S54, E85 Z4 M has all of the gaskets and seals associated with nearly any work done above the engine block, including head gasket replacement, intake manifold removal, VANOS and camshaft work, and more. It's good planning to have a top-end and bottom-end gasket on hand in your garage because you never know when you need a gasket in a pinch.

Symptoms of head gasket failure include: white residue (tapioca) in the valve cover, under the oil filler cap, and in drained oil, low coolant (not caused by failure in cooling system), low oil, oil leak onto exhaust manifold, and loss of power from loss of compression. Cooling system trouble on the S54 must be addressed quickly as the aluminum head is easily damaged if overheating occurs.
