M3 Valve Adjustment in MD/VA/DC?
Hey guys, If your looking for this service, shoot me a PM. I'll come to your place. My fee is like Kaiv's on the west coast, two and a half bills, plus gas. I'm well known on m3forum, and have done this countless times. If needed, I can also replace the exhaust cam, and intake bolts in your vanos, if we discover broken tabs or loose bolts. Another plus of a valve adjustment, knowing they are all intact! :)

Bump for a good guy, I can't count how many people I have heard positive reviews of his work. :thumbsup:

Bump for satisfied customer, Dafoe is a good guy as well as very knowledgeable. We are lucky to have the man within the metro area.

Is this offer still standing?!

I'll do mine same day as Eisenheim and split the gas costs, if OP is up to it. Sounds like a great deal...maybe throw in a full I2? :D

Hell yea man. I wanna get this done before 91k. Im sitting at 89 now. Also, the vanos bolts. But i need to find out the updated part number for those so i can order them.

I sent a PM to Dave on M3forum, where he's a lot more active. I have no idea where to begin on this Vanos stuff. I don't think I've ever done anything related to my ride. Also, I think I need to change my idler pulley because of belt whining noises on cold starts. I only start the poor thing every 2-3 weeks when I'm back in DC. :(

Oh man. Mines my DD haha. Ide like to do the belts as well. But maybe that would be for another day. I need to buy the valve cover gasket kit, and possibly the vanos seals. Lucky me, nothing is leaking and in good order, i just need to do the adjustment for my own knowledge since i have no clue when it was last done.

Hopefully he replies with good news. Might have to make a weekend outta it. Learn, pay little compared to a shop and drink some good brew. Sounds like a blast to me!
