Previous owner forget to change engine oil at all. timing chain lose tension and start to make his own way, shredding all rails, wheels and guides inside. After I've heard her first time she was running like non turbo diesel or worse. I've tried to fix her on my own but I was unable to get vanos tools

no worries i have a proper drift car, M5 sometimes goes with me on track

story part 2

After couple day I manage to get to the vanos units, but stuck trying to take them off



U cant even imagine how hard it to find mechanic in Northern Ireland with one has bigger knowledge about S62 engine than me :p

eventually car went to capitol of Ireland city of Dublin to proper mechanic, at least that what I was thinking...

Hi,

Are you sure you removed fuses 17 and 30 to enable the car to run upto redline on the Dyno ?
