Subject: Improved M20 Valve Cover Gaskets

I just received a new shipment of valve cover gaskets today and noticed that the M20 gaskets (fresh stock from a German manufacturer) have a bead of sealant all around the gasket (on both sides). This is similar to the bead on many of todays head gaskets. The sealant will soften with the heat of the engine and allow for a much better seal between the valve cover and the head. BMW may already be using some of these newer gaskets with their latest stock. I haven't been able to locate and M10 or M30 gaskets with this design. SD
