I ask for a quote for the 18,000 mile service with and without valve clearance adjustment (third one due shortly).

I am on 28K miles and I have just replaced the  Cush drive rubbers again.

They were £82 for the 5 from Bahnstormer in Alton.

I am just about to check clearances again, I am going to do them myself this time. So I will probably by the cam timing tools from BMW to make it all easy.

@bazzer - Top man.  My mechanic skills don't extend to doing the valves.

@JTL

Checking them is the easy bit, taking all the crap off to get access is the time consuming bit :-)

I am sure you could do it if you took your time read the manual and had the space to do it in. Just be methodical, take pics of stuff as you take it apart, cable and hose routing etc.
