Description Reviews Fel-Pro Valve Cover Gasket for all generation 1 MINI Cooper & MINI Cooper S's. Fel-Pro has been making gaskets since the 1970's and is a trusted name in gasket makers. This gasket is a direct replacement to the OEM gasket and it should last a lot longer due to a more flexible rubber compound. This gasket is also cheaper than the OEM one. So it's a win-win! Note: Gasket is normally blue in color, but sometimes comes in orange and may not look like the photo.
