Got a valve adjustment today. Required 15 shims!!

The mech said the inside of my engine was one of the cleanest S54s he's ever seen and they have 2-3 in there at any one time. At least it wasn't a complete lemon!

I'm guessing the former. They always have at least 2-3 E46 M3's in there whenever I go there. Plus I think it was it's first valve adjustment in the whole 123kkms

Sounds pretty much the same. DSC light does seem to be flashing / solid more often so it could be a bit quicker, hard to tell. Haven't really pushed it too much, want to go out one night to test my SS brake lines.

Mine just arrived. so lazy, supercheap is about 1km from my house, but free shipping lol

Yeh I was tempted to get a mate to buy 2 more for me. Considering 6.5L oil changes, plus my E90 is drinking oil atm, I'll need more pretty soon.
