OEM Top-End Gasket Set replaces BMW part #11121736906
Head gaskets are NOT included with this kit. See Related Items below for head gasket options.
BMW puts these gasket sets together to aid in replacing the head gaskets on the M60 engine in the 1993-1995 E34 530i/540i, E32 740i, E38 740i, E31 840ci.
Instead of buying only the head gaskets, this kit includes all of the other gaskets and seals needed to do the job. It also makes a great overhaul kit for any top end work such as resolving coolant leaks or valley pan gaskets, and more. See the complete list below. Note that BMW put this kit together to fit multiple years and models and some extra parts may be included that you won't use. Additional parts such as the head gaskets, head bolts, other hardware, sensors, and hoses are sold separately.

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 M62 must be addressed quickly as the aluminum heads are easily damaged if overheating occurs.
