Valve Adjustment 2000 M Roadster

I would just like to confirm that I have this right. I have a 2000 M Roadster with M52 engine ( I believe engine model is correct). Have been reading a lot about valve adjustment required of some M Roadsters and shimming process etc. According to the Bentley manual my 2000 M Roadster has the M52 engine and therefore has hydraulic cam followers which do not require adjustment. Do I understand this correctly?

Many thanks in advance, this is a great forum.

S54 engine has valve adjust check. Your engine is a S52, no adjust.
