Sounds like BS. Unless they pressure tested, or drove the car, how could they tell the DV was blown? Get a Rev D valve and be done with it.


As far as the cover leak, look for the place of...

Go with Konis or STs. Depends on budget, and what function you want from them. Plenty of info on the subject if you just search around... perhaps in the suspension sub-forum.

How loud is the downshift, like would you say it's loud like a loud clunk, or does it just give you the sensation and that's it?

Sounds like a solenoid is drying up on the mechatronics unit. Same...

Yup ordered an OEM one, but it doesn't come with the cap apparently, no biggie as I'll just use the original one.

It's the only place I've located any fluid anywhere. Not enough to cause a major leak, but enough to escape and boil off/evaporate as if the system were open-air.

True, that's where my original panic came from. However, being a sealed system, if it was leaking anywhere, it shouldn't rise either. New engine was dropped in April or May of 2016 and south FL had...

Definitely. Gonna check it throughout the day, but I made it 4 miles to work and no drop. Just what looks like slight increase maybe from my first post.

Coolant is pure white. Oil burning from a bad PCV (never happened with my bad one though) or failing turbo would appear blue-ish white.

Not to mention the sticker price on that rolling pile is over $75k for the Quad, and if you want options, obviously higher. I'll take an M2 or used M3 for that.

Nah, turbo would produce the same results on regular or tuned programs. How white is the white smoke? Does it have a bluish tinge to it, or is it just straight vape-pen type stuff?

Get rid of the CC, and just change out the PCV and do a valve cleaning (you'll still have to do it) every 50k miles.

Pretty easy to do. Rad support has some hidden bolts behind the grill area that were tough to find. Curious as to why you'd need to remove the rad support for a front bumper install?

It would require re-opening the headlight. I would've had them redo it even if it cost $45.
