Yes, I'm still here and I still have the exhaust although some guy in CA wants to buy it. I'd obviously rather sell locally if interested. Fyi-still waiting on my other exhaust.

Very good info indeed! I forwarded this info to the tuning shop that replaced the vanos to see that all of this was done. I typically am not comfortable doing this type of work on my own. Thanks!

And unfortunately this random rich mode that progressively got worse was not disclosed to me by the owner. To their defense it was not claimed to be a daily driver...only 35,xxx miles.

Yes, it ended up being the dual vanos that had gone bad. We replaced it with a refurbished one from Dr. Vanos and the cryo-sealed hub. Not cheap, but all is working well now!
