    Thanks! It's surprising to say I've owned the car for four years, I feel like it's been two tops.

    It's on my to do list. I'm sure I'll get to it this weekend...

    In other news, I just got back from a trip up to the San Juan Islands. The car ran perfectly as usual and was an easy cruise up and back for 98% of it. I was hoping to make it there and back on one tank of gas, but with just 20 miles to go to Portland, I chickened out with 502.2 miles on the trip odometer and got a gallon of gas. My trip computer thought I had 17 miles left in the tank...but traffic in Vancouver was mounting and Google Maps showed a 12 minute increase in ETA in just under two miles so I didn't want to chance it. Got to Portland with 529.7 miles on the odo round trip and decidedly in the reserve tank (total filled was 16.994 gallons). I was texting Trevor and he was egging me on to not be a coward.

    Blackstone report came back. Everything looks good except for some high lead. Any idea where that might come from? Blackstone suggests bearing wear.



    EDIT: keeping this link for ZHPizza's alignment specs, I'm due for it at some point (http://www.zhpmafia.com/forums/showt...687#post581687)

    I'm pretty sure I localized out the grinding noise on start up: the VANOS. Sigh.

    No bueno. At least you identified the reason.

    I'm trying to figure out what the issue is. I replaced the VANOS seals a while ago. And they don't rattle any other time on the rev range, just on start up for about 0.5 seconds. Maybe not getting enough fuel pressure initially?

    I think it's usually a lack of oil that causes the rattle at startup. @Sreten just did a big project to address that on his M5, but our cars shouldn't have that issue.

    Are you sure it's the Vanos? Is it tied to a certain rpm or just time?

    Can you post a video of the startup?

    M5 and M54 have totally different Vanos setup and my rattle was caused by oil draining from the Vanos chamber.
    Only time I heard Vanos rattle on M54 is when you hold rpms in 1.5-2-3k range.
