RTAB, FCAB, Vanos, Valve Adjustment, Peake tools for loan

Had to start a new thread as the old one couldn't be edited anymore...

BMW tools for loan: RTAB, FCAB, Vanos/timing, Peake scan/reset, ABS

Iíve accumulated several BMW tools over the years from owning several BMWs and Iím offering them to loan. Theyíre a rip off to buy for a one time use, so hereís an opportunity to get the job done with the right tool.

You must replace shims with OEM units from the dealer prior to sending it back. You are responsible for return shipping (around $15 with insurance).

Valve Shims

Hey Man,
Can you get the individual valve shims at the dealer? All I can seem to find online are the complete shim kits. Also any idea what the price is of a individual shim ? I need to shim my valves in the next month or two and am considering renting your kit.

Thanks,
Matthias

Yup, you can get them at the dealer. Prices vary, maybe someone can chime in, but I think theyre around $4 each or so.
