HI Sliver x3

What were thy symptoms that made you realise that there was issue with the Vanos.........

My 118i has done about 134,000km and the transmission thumps.......did u have similar issues when u got the VANOS done.....is there a relationship between the Vanos and the transmission thumping, ......

This is a send hand car that i have bought , and think it has had bad service history........could the bad oil have caused the Vanos Sensor to play and thys cause transmission to paly up.

I would be surprised if the transmission may blow up at 134k km.

What was your experience.

Mine was 23,000km last year, engine ran very rough .... I booked it into BMW Melb they said Vanos sensor & Solenoid needed replacing... quote $2800

Checked with independent they said they could do for $1700

In hind sign, I should have ordered parts on line (realoem.com and bmwpartsonline.com.au) for $300 max then spend $100-$200 on labour

I don't trust BMW services anymore

see the chart

http://realoem.com/bmw/showparts.do?...96&hg=11&fg=15

where are you located ?

also BMW said wrong oil will cause sensor to play up
