            I think its something to do with BMWs version of variable valve timing and works by the exhaust. I know its very expensive to sort if it goes wrong!

                      were you not considering a Beemer at one point!!


                      Vanos= £££££££

                      Comes in single and double guises, a mix of hydraulic and mechanical systems that advance timing (and lift in the double system) Also the double system incorporates some EGR controls. VERY expensive when it goes pear shaped. My mates 316ti lunched its Vanos system.....new engine from Beemer required, luckily they had just overhauled the Vanos system and stumped up for the replacement.

                        There's no substitute for fresh oil, mine will never get like that, what was he thinking about.
