Yeah these cars are expensive to own. M3 is really Money cubed ya know.Pay the price. Get the good stuff & your car will run fine. Skimp and pay through lousy performance and the constant nagging question. Why doesn't my car scream like it used to?

The spring loaded center rotor was discontinued by BMW ages ago. You are running on a model of part, even from Bosch, that BMW removed from the engine after '88 I believe.

Now you can use the Volvo engine shims and tool for valve adjustments and save some $ but most of what you are attempting to do is useless.

BTW, you always replace the cap & rotor as a pair. Never use a used part w/ a new one when it comes to this.
