Engine Tune!

Paid a visit to my local dealer the other day. I'm still not convinced my engine's running well! It's just not as smooth and flexible as it should be. It's hard to discribe but if it was 20 years older I'd say the mixture was wrong, the carbs needed balancing, the ignition was retarded...............

The service manager wants to personally supervise a complete tune up next week. He wants it for 2 days so they can set the clearances, throttle flaps, vacuums, throttle pot, the works...........Looking back at the service receipts I don't think it's been done before! We shall see what happens.

By the way he's seen two E34 M5's recently. One for a new exhuast and SLS re-plumb, the other for an engine top end rebuild after the timing chain jumped. The tensioner failed apparently! Anyone been to see Raymond at John Clark Aberdeen recently?
