M5 specialist in Scotland

Is there such a thing?

I'm not talking about Inspection 2's and the like but the bigger jobs, namely anything VANOS, rod bearing or timing chain guide related.

Should any of the above need done I don't have a clue who I could take it to with real confidence.

Haven't tried asking along your nearest BMW dealership?
Mine will be going to John Clarke in Aberdeen if anything needs doing.

In Aberdeen I'd reccomend Premier Motors or AW Autotech

A main dealer would rape you for the work I'm talking about. I phoned Premier Motors but he seemed hesitant given he only has one ramp and would need to get a hold of the timing tools.
