Dan,

In Europe this has been recognised as a official fixa for quite a time now. As for North America (and the rest of the world), I do not have a clue.

Just a little clarificarion. If someone tries to use the numbers below BMW will say they are not valid numbers. Here's a breakdown to make it easier.

Ignore the first 3 numbers, reference numbers for the ticket they were applied to.

The BMW part number are the following 11 digits arranged as follows.

xx xx x xxx xxx

The last digit is Qty.

This may help.....

Thanks! My car's going in for it's first scheduled service (and to fix a crapload of problems). I'll call now to have the dealer have this fix ready too.

Anyone know where I can find a service bulletin documenting the VANOS problem, or at least indicating that there is one?

Jonas,

I had my car in on some service in October and wanted them to have a look at my diesel sound among other things such as brakes, worthless, handsfree, slow nav system, nav screen flimmer, etc. They fixed everything except teh VANOS but diganosed it as "faulty" and ordered the parts. Other things got in the way so I waited til this month to have the fix done. It was all on the warranty. The fix was done at BMW Sverige in Solna, in fact I have all my services done there.

Täby? Do you have a Carbon Black M5?

Cheers,
/Johan

Yes I have a carbon black M5 and I live in the Northern part of Täby, Täby Kyrkby. Although there are at least 2 other carbon black M5's in the neighbourhood.

You say you are using the BMW in Solna. I took delivery of my M5 from that dealer last April and I'm not impressed with their knowledge about the M5. When I asked them to put a bottle of oil in the trunk at the delivery after have read all comment's on this board about oil consumption, they looked at me as a question mark and told me it's totally unnecessary. They where 100% sure I wouldn't need to fill extra oil before the first service. Of course they where wrong.

Do you have a special person at the Solna dealer you feel confident with and you used to talk to?

Jonas
