Re: Thinking of moving to NYC

Commute or lose your hobbies. Living in the city sucks.

Re: Westchester Valve Adjustment Guru

If I recall correctly it was a low mileage example. I'd like to say between 50-60k miles. No weird sounds at all!

BMW scores some brownie points for trying to keep manual alive. Looks good.

Re: 01 M3(Manual) pops out of reverse

It's gotta be the UUC shifter. Replace back to stock and see what happens.

Re: VANOS oil pump disc damage - advice?

In my experience when the caps are giving me resistance it's because they are too dry. Apply 10w-60 to the cap exterior and retry. Usually does the trick.

If that works I wouldn't be too concerned...

Re: Using non oem valve cover gaskets

I've used around 75+ Elring gaskets with a pretty solid success rate. Can only think of 2 or 3 failures.

Re: Time to play "whats that noise?"

Sounds like a throwout bearing. How often does the car get driven?

Re: Cracked valve cover oil everywhere

Good news!

I would also rotate the engine and inspect the chain and sprockets for any damage.

Re: Urg: Piece of upper tc rail missing

You'll be fine. You may find shavings along the inside of the head but otherwise it's nothing you need to be concerned about.

Just celebrate on finding that bolt!!

Re: My AKG Debacle

Mine was reinforced with plates at 56k about 5 years ago.

Just did my subframe/diff bushings at 115k and still found one crack :thumbsdown:

Plates are not a lifetime fix :(
