leaking vanos accumulator
before buying a 02 M3 I had a top to bottom inspection performed. One item noted on the report was that the vanos accumulator was leaking :( and recommended a replacement (app $500+):cry:. after I asked if this was an urgent matter I was told ..NO it is not. I'm wondering if this is something within the skill set of an average skilled auto mechanic that I could do during the winter months that are about to set upon me? :dunno: Comments?

There are several "how to" threads on this forum that would walk you through it... it looks like a simple repair and the seal kits are available on ebay and elsewhere.
