Default DanAvoN7 appreciation thread (VANOS/valve adjust)

I had recently discovered a cracked exhaust hub and needed some help fixing it immediately. I know Dan (DanAvoN7) is among a few of the California BMW gurus that offer their expertise to others. He had mentioned to me that he was very familiar with the process and offered to fix it for a *very* reasonable cost. He gave me the option to drop the car off at his house or to come out to my house and work on it in my garage and was ready to work on the car almost immediately. He even took the time to advise me about all the other little parts and pieces to replace while we had it apart (I saved the list if anyone needs it).

The actual install went smoothly. Dan is very meticulous and he treated the car as if it were his own- cleaning pretty much everything along the way, replacing every gasket and seal even if it didn’t look too bad, torqueing and re-torquing everything etc. Once the VANOS was complete I had asked him about my valves and since he brought his shim kit and he offered to check and adjust them for less than I had heard anyone quote for this. Once all the mechanical issues were sorted and the car was buttoned back up he pulled out his laptop and reset all the adaptations so the car could re-learn and optimize itself with everything working properly.

I have since put about a thousand miles on the car and it feels better than ever. We plugged his laptop back in and ran a VANOS test to confirm everything was working perfectly and sure enough everything checks out in perfect health. I can’t thank him enough and I can’t recommend him enough to people in Northern California (SF Bay Area) looking to have work done.

I have already started to bug him about doing the VANOS and valve adjust on my dad’s car and I know some of my other E46 buddies will be headed his way for VANOS/valve adjustments as well.
