CAN SOMEBODY HELP ME, I AM TRYING TO CONVINCE MY BMW DEALER THAT THERE IS A PROBLEM WITH THE VANOS OM MY 2000 M5. AT IDLE A DIESEL LIKE NOISE IS VERY DISTINCT AND IS EXTREMELY SO WHEN THE ENGINE HAS WARMED.IT FIRST BECAME NOTICEABLE AT 100 MILES, BUT NOW GETTING MUCH LOUDER HAVING COVERED 1350 MILES. TO CONVINCE THE DEALER, AND I HAVE ALREADY TOLD THEM THAT A REPAIR KIT DOES EXIST, THE HEAD TECHNICIAN WANTS FURTHER INFO. I TOLD HIM THAT OTHER M5 OWNERS WHO HAVE ALREADY POSTED THE SAME PROBLEM TO THIS DISCUSSION FORUM, AND HAVE HAD THE REPAIR KITS FITTED, HAVE SEEN A NOTICEABLE CURE. ALL I REQUIRE IS A CONTACT NAME/TECHNICIAN AT ANY BMW DEALER/FRANCHISE WHO HAS HAD EXPERIENCE WITH FITTING A VANOS REPAIR KIT. PLEASE EMAIL ME.

THANKS IN ADVANCE FOR ANY HELP.

FINALLY, WHY ARE BMW HUSH HUSH AND COY ABOUT THIS PROBLEM??????

I've got a British client who does that too. Must be something in the water.
