Just had to share this story.
I had read a lot about the banjo bolts on the spray bar coming loose on
the m30 engine.
I checked the service records for our car, and bmw did perform the
"service" for the issue.
However, I read too much about it remaining a problem.
and ordered some (Nice guy, btw). I held on to them; and finally dropped
off the car at my mechanic and asked him to adjust the valves & install
the new banjo bolts.
He tried to talk me out of it; saying factory recalls are usually pretty
good; and the engine ran fine/sounded good and he didn't think a valve adjust
was called for. (He's not a bmw specialist; but a darn good mechanic)
I just got off the phone with him.... one of the banjo bolts was completely
out.... Just sitting there....
Sometimes being paranoid is a good thing.
