M3 Valve Adjustment in MD/VA/DC?

Hey guys, If your looking for this service, shoot me a PM. I'll come to your place. My fee is like Kaiv's on the west coast, two and a half bills, plus gas. I'm well known on m3forum, and have done this countless times. If needed, I can also replace the exhaust cam, and intake bolts in your vanos, if we discover broken tabs or loose bolts. Another plus of a valve adjustment, knowing they are all intact!

Bump for satisfied customer, Dafoe is a good guy as well as very knowledgeable. We are lucky to have the man within the metro area.

I sent a PM to Dave on M3forum, where he's a lot more active. I have no idea where to begin on this Vanos stuff. I don't think I've ever done anything related to my ride. Also, I think I need to change my idler pulley because of belt whining noises on cold starts. I only start the poor thing every 2-3 weeks when I'm back in DC.

Re: M3 Valve Adjustment in MD/VA/DC?

Oh man. Mines my DD haha. Ide like to do the belts as well. But maybe that would be for another day. I need to buy the valve cover gasket kit, and possibly the vanos seals. Lucky me, nothing is leaking and in good order, i just need to do the adjustment for my own knowledge since i have no clue when it was last done.

Hopefully he replies with good news. Might have to make a weekend outta it. Learn, pay little compared to a shop and drink some good brew. Sounds like a blast to me!
