Top-End Gasket Set, Elring - E60 550i, E63 650i, E65 750i, E70 X5 4.8i
Extensive gasket and seal package for N62 most work above the engine block. OEM equivalent to BMW part #11127551822.
Head gasket failure is a not uncommon N62 issue and it's something to take seriously. This head gasket set for E60 550i, E63 650i, E65 750i, E70 X5 4.8i has all of the gaskets and seals associated with nearly any work done above the engine block, including head gasket replacement, intake manifold removal, valley pan, VANOS/Valvetronic 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 #11127530256) you can get all of the other gaskets and seals needed to complete the job. This N62 top end gasket set includes:

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 N62 must be addressed quickly as the aluminum head is easily damaged if overheating occurs.
