Hi all

I'll be overhauling the heads on my M5 in late June or July.
Searched already but don't see a thread like this -
Besides what's on TIS, can anyone share things to look out for on a job like this?

Probably going to upgrade the splines to the Dr. Vanos ones and reseal the vanos with Besian stuff too.

I would put that project on the shelf for a while. Head gaskets are out of stock. You don't want to have the engine disassembled until they are available again, and may take a while.

Depending on the production date of the car your VANOS spring plates may need replacing with the updated version.

Rang dealer here today and they have them in stock (they claim at least)

Thanks for the info - I'll look into this. It's a 10.98 build iirc
