During my 18K service on my GTL they discovered one of the intake valves was out of tolerance. When they went to install a shim the tech saw the valve had mushroomed on one and the bucket was also discolored side. I went to dealer today to actually see what the intake valve looked like. It’s not obvious at first but when you look closer you can see the damage to both the valve and bucket. BMW approved the replacement for parts and labor under warranty which I expected and is good. Bad news is there are no valves in stock either in the US or the Fatherland. No estimate from BMW of how long till it gets here. Dealer seems to think one can be taken from the assembly plant and shipped to the US. I hope he is right and things don’t get delayed much with Customs. BMW of Riverside has been great to deal with and they provided me their K1600 GTL Demo for a loaner so I can do my planned trip up the Coast Highway this weekend.
