    2014 M3 with high kms - should I buy?

    I could think of better things to blow 55k on personally, nice car, but its gonna depreciate like a mofo really quickly, compared to the others on the market, unless you dont drive it and wait for the populations odos to catch up.. Get something thats already been forgotten about by the Jones's, and has done all its depreciation, then blow 40k on it #cough#S65 1 series#cough#

    How to remove strut nut without an impact

    Yeah throw up a pic of your spring compressor setup, sounds much more difficult than it should be.
  7. No change. Anyone handy have the right box of tricks to reset the adaptation on DME? Edit - Anyone know if Carly can do this? Been playing with the idea of buying one.
  8. Eccentric sensor plug is dry, was a nice pool of oil beneath the valvetronic motor and down the sparkplug tube for #4, doesnt look like the valvetronic seal is leaking, just that someone decided that oil belonged on the outside of the engine and not in the sump. Will clean it all up and see what happens.
  9. Eccentric cam sensor seal leaking and filling the plug with oil ? Seems plausible.
  10. Car has done this for awhile, mechanics couldnt find fault, its a little disconcerting sometimes as it can do it when acclerating from lights/crossing a road/going around a round about. Under no/low load, WOT only, from idle only, the engine hesitates and splutters around before accelerating. Sometimes it lasts seconds, sometimes its just a cough. Only does it from idle, and otherwise works perfectly. No fault codes. Nadda. Ive reset the DME by pulling the battery. No change, No change in fault code logging. Ive pulled the vanos solenoids and cleaned them. No change, didnt look dirty either. Done the throttle calibration thing. No change. According to service history plugs are less than 20k old, everything else has many thousand k left on it. Doesnt feel likes it misfiring anyway (and surely the DME would pick a misfire up) Any ideas? My next step was to just change the vanos solenoids and cross fingers. Anyone come across this before? Im trying to avoid unleashing the parts cannon at it to solve!

    How to remove strut nut without an impact

    Theyre not perfect, as you only get half turn by half turn as the allen key/cut out interferes, but it works
