Just read all your posts. I'm having the same problem with my '07 M5 manual. I'm going on week 11 with my car sitting in the service dept. at BMW Manhattan. First they told me that they weren't manufacturing and stocking the parts yet (they are pulling the parts from M5s on the assembly line; am I to assume that they will not have the same problem?), then when they got the parts and attempted to repair the car, they noticed that the faulty pump had caused additional damage. Now waiting for the second set of parts to come in and for those to be installed.Barry Lausch said:Vanos pump has been replaced, No workee! Now we replaced the oil accumulator for the vanos system. I'll keep you posted...........today is day 19. can anyone spell LEMON.
I had the car for about a month before the problem came up. Now it's been out of my hands for nearly 3 months. BMW customer relations has basically nothing of value to say when I call to complain.
