    Thanks ZDave: I got the package

    You didn't have to insure it, but thanks anyway: it got here safe. You were mentioning your VANOS had a lot of play. But that how BMW made them originally!!!!!

    Anyway: what you think? Did it worked out good? Any feedback?

    HUGE difference! Butt dyno tells me so

    much quieter, better response. I'm also not losing oil any more. Was losing about a quart a month, so your fix would have paid for itself in no time anyway. It's not bogging down either and there is a lot more everything everywhere (it's an industry term).

    We also swapped out the vanos solenoid ($185 was the best price and it was from Max) because the old one checked out dead.

    Giznas also found the crank sensor wasn't working so I'll get a new one of those ($45 ish) when I get around to it.

    There's still that 800 pound gorilla in the corner (subframe) that I've got to deal with very, very soon, so I won't drive it like I stole it quite yet.

    Kudos to you for staying on this issue. It's a big one and one that most of our cars probably suffer from. Grazie!!!
