Hi I have only recently joined the Club, and I wondered if anybody can help me.
I own a 1990 BMW 730 (e32) that had a new exhaust last year but is now blowing at the front. I took it to my local Tyre and Exhaust Centre who told me that I need 2 "O" ring gaskets that go between the 2 front pipes and the manifold. They then told me that you can no longer purchase these new!
Does anybody know if the same gaskets are used for a later 7 series or any other series and if so where I can purchase them from.

Many thanks

The O rings can be bought from BMW, part no 18111723532. When undoing the long bolts, they need top be heated to red hot and allowed to cool to prevent them snapping off in the manifold.


Pending Approval.

Smile Hi I thought I would just add a quick note to the above. Again many thanks to AndrewE for supplying the relevant information regarding the exhaust problem I had with my BMW 730. I was able to source the parts from Linwar Motors who advertise in the Straight Six magazine. I spoke to a very helpful person and the parts arrived in the post the following day. Apparently they hold quite a lot of spares for the e32 model. Worth knowing!

Again many thanks
