I didn't think the N52 engine used "VANOS" technology. I thought the newer BMW engines used what BMW terms "Valvetronic" technology to monitor valve timing. I thought VANOS went out with the M54 engine.

2 11-36-7-524-954 Collar Screw
Now that the VANOS is back in line, the MPG has increased by 5 MPG in the city, I'll be interested to see how it does on the highway.
