That says it all. Driving to Detroit after two hours on the road I hear what sounds like a chain! Then the gear symbol and a “take it easy” warning on the screen. I got to my destination, let it sit a few hours. Drives fine! Local BMW shop say about 5K for the megatronic valve body R&R. What are my options? My first BMW, life long garage guy.

I have a 525xi…..It’s not a hard job to replace valves, seals and refill. I used Amsoil fluids and it drives like a dream!!!
