Guys around Oly?

Anyone in the Oly area on here? I work in Tumwater and live in Chehalis. Just wondering if theres anyone close to me.

On that point, I will need to do a Vanos system rebuild on my '02 330CI soon. If there's anyone around me that has experience with this I could use the help! The beer exchange rate is good around here!

I work in Oly but live in Tacoma. I dunno if that counts. I haven't done any vanos work on a Non-M, but I can't imagine it would be too hard.

I stay in lacey, haven't done any vanos work on non M but there's a guy in Lakewood that's supposed to be really good, he does valve adjustments for a decent price also, if I remember correctly about $450

I live just a little north of you in Tenino. Don't let the vanos scare you, it was actually a pretty easy job.

Thank you. I didn't have an M Roady, this is my first M car. My past cars have been an M50 powered E30, and a couple of E36 sedans.

I'd be down for an Oly meet sometime.
