Though this happened on another brand of German car, I thought I would pass this on here, especially after the recent long series of posts by the guy who installed an M5 flywheel incorrectly.

Good mechanic puts a new, German-made flywheel into an older 911. (You can't install a flywheel incorrectly in a 911). Engine won't fire, mechanic spends days working on it. Substitutes everything he can think of - sensors, DME, etc.

Finally, pulls the flywheel and checks the reference pin with a magnet. Turns out the pin was made from stainless steel and would not trip the crank position sensor. Who would have thought?
