I just retrieved my 530im from the local dealer (they picked up the tab). I had a chance to review the leakdown results with the engine specialist. The graphical printout indicated cylinder #2 was the worst example at 7%; the failure point is 15%. The other cylinders were lower and tightly grouped just below 6%. He said the engine was in remarkable condition for 74k miles and was curious about my maintenance habits.

By the way, I reluctantly have to sell this car. Inquire within.
