Default Re: DIY: E46 M3 (S54) detailed valve adjustment

This is great! Thank you very much. I am in the middle of checking/adjusting my valves on my new to me 2004. It has 139000 miles on it. Almost all valves were very loose. I did run out of 2.28 and 2.24mm shims. Heading to the dealer or motorcycle dealer tomorrow. I need 3 more 2.28mm shims. I like how easy it is to access the shims. Much easier than my motorcycles! Very smart design.

Anyone saved the pictures or had a snapshot of the original post before the links are dead? I hate myself that I didn't save the original post as PDF when the pictures were still good. I knew this day would come but was rolling the dice on my fortune.

Any chance someone has the original post with pictures saved that they can send me? Looks incredibly detailed and exactly what I need?

Like I said, it came out to 106 pages. To help Zach out, here are the first 40 pages. I'll try to finish the rest next weekend. If you want the whole doc, send me your email. Came out to 42MB.
