If it's a 528i with the original intake manifold, it doesn't have DISA valves. I should know, I swapped my intake manifold for a DISA equipped one for the HP bump.

I was experiencing something like what you're saying, but it was misfire due to dying ignition coil. Pull the codes and see if it says misfire.

I JUST had one ignition coil swapped. I really freaked out when the car started misfiring and eventually turned cylinder 6 off, really freaked out. Got all new plugs and 1 coil, runs like a champ!

I rolled the dice on some Ebay ones. I will report if they suck. They come with a 90 day warranty and can be returned. Worst case I send them back and get OEM.

I have the same car as you with 15K more miles. I can't say I've ever heard any such noises, I haven't heard the e60 had early bearing failure issues. Try finding an indy that knows BMWs well.

What a load of BS. My 528i has not punished me with a big repair (knock on wood). But I did buy an old Jeep Liberty for snow days, and had to replace a butload of crap in it.

Good to hear. I was out with a friend on some back rounds, revving it up, and the thought about the head gasket came into mind. Maxxym, did you do your water pump replacement yet?

Do you really need adjustability? I think that's great if you track, but if you daily drive, I think the Bilsteins would more than suffice.
