E63 / E64 6 Series (2004 - 2010)
The E63/E64 BMW 6 Series builds on BMW's sporty heritage with aggressive lines and an incredible motor to back the design up. Available in coupe and convertible trims with a standard 4.8 liter engine producing 360 horsepower and 360 lb-ft of torque, the 6-series is a popular choice that exceeds expectations.

Unhappy Stem Valve Replacement - Los Angeles

e64/e64 engines are known for "smoking" due to one or all of following failures.

(If you have to add more than a quart of oil every ~5000 miles, then it's smoking)

1. CVC Valve fail (Crankcase Vent Valves) - Easy fix - see DIY
2. PCV Valve fail (Positive Crankcase Ventilation ) - Still not too bad of a fix. - DIY
3. Stem Valve Replacement - YOU ARE SCREWED !!

$3 is very noticeable when you idle(park) the engine for a while and drive, and all of sudden, a flume of smoke burst out from the exhaust.

And that's what I have !!

Does anybody know an able (and relatively cheap) Bimmer mechanic who can do this job in Los Angeles area?

HELP !!
