Default Bottom end upgrade

I've had the car for 6 years now and I'm the 2nd owner . With all the scare stories with the S54 spinning shells so with 156k miles on the clock I took the Jump and gave it to Scotts Performance to carry out the works .
We are all surprised that the wear is less than we expected .
With the Boot floor replaced by BMW and the head gasket , Vanos , Waterpump , Clutch and these works were all done by Scotts hopefully there isn't any more scary stories ! ....otherwise I may sell it next year !

Big Thankyou to Scotts Performance for the quick turnaround with the works . Top job as usual

Looks lovely - that is a very low amount of wear for the mileage!

Cheers, yeah we all thought they would be much worse. Frequent oil changes helps apparently.
