- Vanos Solenoid Pack (Beisan Solution available and Dr.Vanos...Beisan is rebuilt and Dr.Vanos is overpriced new OEM with same inherent design flaw)
- Vanos Seals (Beisan Solution available)

Sent an email to Raj@Beisan asking what he recommends for a full overhaul on the S54 vanos and I expect he'll be back to me today.
Thanks Kenton, this is definitely useful information for all of us and thanks for keeping it in one thread. That other thread started to get me worries specially since I am not the only one that has the ticking noise. Lets see what he has to say about our similar symptoms.
