I know at least Blaufergnügen has them; they may or may not be
available as a standard Audi part, but you don't want to get it at the
dealer anyway. I paid $20 for a neoprene valve cover gasket made by
Elring, which is apparently one of the standard gasket manufacturers.
Replacing it is as easy as it looks -- just be sure not to overtorque
the nuts. It's a very low spec, I think 10 Nm. I cross-torque them
as with head bolts; you don't have to, but it ca'n't hurt.
Vorsprung durch Technik, eh?
