VANOS cover set screws specs?
My car is an 11/99 production so it has all of the maladies, including the VANOS solenoids most recently. I'm taking them out to do a full restore, resoldering the boards, new seals, and retrofitting the new-style covers with the set screws.
The covers themselves are already ~$100 each, but then I looked at the cost of the set screws ("grub screws" according to BMW) and it got even more ridiculous -- $6 each, and there's 8 of them!!!
Anyone know what the specs of the screws (diameter, thread, and pitch) -- I'm sure we can source this elsewhere from a tenth of the cost!
