Question Valve cover gaskets?

Hey Guys, is this the right valve cover gasket (looks blue?) for my 318ti with the M44B19 engine??

https://www.ebay.com/itm/91-99-BMW-3...9/371430379833

And I guess I also need this seal too right? Seal Cylinder Head To Valve Cover
https://www.ebay.com/itm/202034939214

Also grabbing this for the oil filter housing

Thanks!

I would locate the OEM part number on RealOEM and see if the eBay listing includes that number.
Wait, that second kit only includes 1 seal, see note "Important: The listing only includes the item(s) highlighted with red number on our diagram.." I only see 1 part highlighted.
I usually buy this stuff from ECS, FCP or Bimmerworld, seems like it's usually better quality, it's going to fit and it's not much more money. That said, the oil pan gasket kit I bought included a bunch of other seals and no part numbers, so I don't even know where many of them go.

#1 looks right
#2 I donít think you need. It goes up in the valve cover and is not part of the valve cover to engine seal.
#3 no idea, haven needed to replace that (yet).
See your in New Zealand how bad is shipping vs a local source?

Second one may be oil supply seal? I replaced this on my M44 when changing the valve cover gasket.

I have been very busy under my car fellas! Excuse my lack or replies. The 318ti has been a great car to work on, just fun go cart stuff. I figured I'd leave the valve cover gasket for later as its not leaking or anything and likely was done by the previous owner at some stage from the looks of it.

The only leaks of mine are the engine oil pan and oil filter gasket. Both of which I intend to do with High Temp RTV (Red or Copper).
