Head & Top End Gasket Set, Elring - E70 X5M, E71 X6M
Elring Top-End Gasket Set - S63 X5M/X6M
Head gasket failure is a not uncommon S63 issue and it's something to take seriously. This head gasket set for F10 M5, F06/F13 M6, E70 X5M, E71 X6M 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. Gasket sets are like having your very own BMW parts department at your finger tips!
The head gasket is sold separately (see below). Head gaskets are available in more than one thickness to account for a shaved or milled cylinder head. Use a stock thickness if you are not shaving the head.
Instead of buying just the head gasket (BMW part #11127567765) you can get all of the other gaskets and seals needed to complete the job. This S63 top end gasket set includes:

Additional parts such as the head gasket, head bolts, other hardware, and sensors are sold separately (see below).
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 S63 must be addressed quickly as the aluminum head is easily damaged if overheating occurs.
This is an OEM head gasket set manufactured by Elring - one of the original suppliers to BMW for these gaskets, as well as many other gaskets and seals. As the OEM it meets all of BMW's original design, fitment, and performance requirements and is TUV approved. OEM parts are the best alternative to more expensive Original BMW parts because they are virtually identical without the inflated price tag. These parts have a two year warranty.
