I'm planning to check my valve clearances just to be sure they're ok, would appreciate anyone who could let me know the intake and exhaust valve clearances, plus any tips on checking them on these engines?

Thanks,

Mark

Mark, have a search - do you realise they use shims?

You need a BMW tool to do the job properly, plus obviously remove them and order shims, etc.

Great job to get done though!

Hi, like nebpor said you need a special tool, part number 113 170 If I remember correctly. The clearance should be 0.3 mm + or - 0.02 mm, you will need a decent set of feeler gauges also.
