Bump this up. Hopefully a moderator will see this and sticky it.

Exclamation

Subscribed. This thread should be stickied so as to keep the paranoia down about the entire "VANOS Issue".

Since we are trying to consolidate stickies - this unfortunately will not be stuck. Perhaps after we merge a few others..

BTW - people complain if we do sticky, and people complain if we don't sticky.. please don't bother... we have heard it before.. Try to keep the thread on-track. Postings with complaints for either will be deleted.
