Mein Auto: 2007 Alpina B7
I think I may have been leaking past my compression rings in one of my adjusters, so I replaced a few of them while doing my valve stem seals this past summer. Unfortunately I didn't get around to actually taking an adjuster apart since I was trying to get it done in a weekend or so. I have a little bit of hesitation in mine as well (compared to quarterto8's car), so if anyone has an extra adjuster sitting around that I can pull apart, let me know and if it looks like I can rebuild whatever seals and stuff there are, I'll rebuild the ones on mine and let you know how it works.

I'd be curious to see the differences while running seen through INPA on a "bad" setup versus a new one.
