Lol only replaced the one pulley cuz the bearing in it seized last winter. I checked all the other pulleys when I was in there and the rest seemed fine. But good point I will probably replace the rest when im not lazy lol.

But could you explain what the ICB TB and DISA are? Sorry bad with acronyms :/

And on the vanos, I had a BMW tech tell me that on non m's, the vanos is self adjusting so there is no reason to mess with it. To me, this doesnt sound correct, Maybe he doesnt know what the hell he's talking about.
