Just got done diagnosing a e60 m5 with vanos issues. Found that pieces of bearing material were clogging the filter/oil screen in the vanos units and causing them not to worl properly. Pulledthe pan and rod bearings to find this :






This m5 had 43k on it. We will be tearing it all down. Cleaning and installing a new crankshaft and vac rod bearings along with crank bearings and new vanos units.
