BMW's with the N62 V8 engine frequently develop coolant leaks at the front of the engine. Coolant will usually be seen leaking from a weep hole on the front timing cover. The engine has a coolant transfer pipe that runs from the front to the rear of the engine, under the intake manifold, the integrated front seal on the pipe fails causing the leak.
The factory prescribed repair is very time consuming and requires removal of the engine, cylinder heads, oil pan and timing covers. This expandable pipe allows the repair to be done by an experienced technician in under 10 hours, saving thousands in labor costs.
The following additional parts ( not included ) are required to complete the repair:

Brand DescriptionWhen a part we sell has a brand of "aftermarket," that simply means we use two or more equivalent brands to fill orders. We do this to make sure we always have parts available to ship to you at this price. Since inventory levels vary from day to day -- even hour to hour -- we cannot predict with certainty which brand you will receive. But know this...
Bavarian Autosport has been offering high-quality aftermarket parts to cost-conscious BMW and MINI owners for decades. A lot of the aftermarket parts we sell are manufactured by the same companies BMW and MINI use. In several instances we have been able to source aftermarket parts that are superior to those used by BMW and MINI, offering either better performance, better value, or both. We have put many, many years and a lot of resources into finding and testing these parts, which is why we stand behind every aftermarket part we sell with a 100% satisfaction guarantee and a full 12-month warranty. If any product shows a history of failing to meet our standards or our customers' expectations, we won't sell it.
