VANOS noise

Hey guys,

Just wanted to know if the slight vanos noise I'm hearing on my Z4M coupe is normal?

Can anyone help?

Mate, don't think that's normal. I haven't experienced it unfortunately. Search the main forums see if it comes up. Otherwise off to the mechanics it goes, which btw, who do you guys use?

I don't think mine does that - the only abnormal noise I get is from the ?diff when changing 1st to 2nd and reversing when pushing the clutch in... which apparently is normal?

Mine has 3yrs of BMW warranty - but I've heard Southern BM is pretty good.

Yeh the 1st - 2nd / reverse gear clunk is normal.... aside from that nothing else is haha.
I'm with John @ BM Autowerks. Can't praise them enough.

I think it was all in my head. I went to a reputable indy and even i couldn't hear it when i tried to show him.

I've also since had her opened up for a full diagnostics on the VANOS, valve clearances checked and cam (VANOS) bolts replaced with the new ones etc. etc. The report I got back was that the car is mechanically perfect.

Given the car was new to me, I think I just wasn't used to the charecteristic noises it makes.
