At DrVanos.com we have addressed all the common problems related to the Dual Vanos and provided solutions to those problems in a complete, ready to install kit. Each dual vanos is fully rebuilt using modified bearings along with high-performance Viton O-rings and Teflon seals that will not only eliminate the vanos rattle, but also restore lost power due to worn out internals. Our vanos units will stand up to more abuse than the stock units, and will easily last the life of the car.


Fully cleaned and rebuilt vanos unit with new lifetime Viton O-rings and Teflon seals installed. In addition, we rebuild the internal bearings to eliminate the 'marbles in a tin can' noises. It's complete and is ready to install, you only need to move your cam sensor to the new vanos.

The Dual Vanos kit also includes -

  • New vanos mounting gasket
  • 2 new crush washers for the oil line
  • New mounting bolt for the cam sensor

We have created a specialized installation document for the Dual Vanos kit which can be downloaded from the menu at the left.
The Dual Vanos installtion does not require any special cam timing tools since the cam timing is not affected when removing/installing the Vanos. We do however rent the tool kit for those that may need to reset their timing or are installing cams, etc.
The core charge allows us to send you a rebuilt vanos at a much lower price than a new unit would cost from the dealer. By sending out a complete, ready to install vanos the customer has the ability to replace their vanos as quickly as possible and then return their old vanos for the core refund. This helps to keep your downtime to a minimum so you can get back on the road without waiting for parts.

The Dual Vanos core charge is $150.

We ask that you return your old vanos unit to us as quickly as possible. Once we receive your complete core we will immediately refund the full core charge amount back to your Paypal or Credit Card account.

Parts and Accessories...

The DISA valve, or "Intake Manifold Adjuster Unit", is a common failure on the M54 BMW engines and is caused by the poor materials used in the manufacturing process in a couple of the key valve components. The three parts of the DISA are the flat plastic flapper valve, the bell crank lever that rotates the flapper, and the vacuum pot, all made of glass reinforced nylon. This construction of glass and nylon is what primarily creates failure points. The symptoms of a worn DISA valve include rough idle, lean engine codes and lack of low to mid rpm power. We upgrade the DISA by replacing the plastic flapper valve and bell crank with machined aluminum and titanium parts which will last the life of the engine.

Our custom CNC Delrin shift knobs are back! Delrin is a extremely durable thermoplastic that will hold up to both street and track use and is naturally weighted for a solid shifting feel compared to the stock lightweight shift knobs. It does not conduct heat like aluminum so they are always comfortable even on a hot summer day.

Available in 2 sizes, short or tall.

  • The tall version works best in track cars and puts your hands closer to the steering wheel for quicker shifting.
  • The short version is only slightly taller than a stock shift knob and is right at home in any street or track car.

Installation is simple and requires no tools. They're held in place using a simple interference fit instead of set screws so there is no chance of it moving once in place, a must for track cars. Fits all stock BMW shift levers.

The German Auto Solutions 1.2 bar Cooling System Cap uses 100% original BMW internal components that have been recalibrated to vent at 1.2 bar vs. the factory 2.0 bar setting. Most modern cooling systems are calibrated at 1.0 - 1.2 bar to reduce stress on the plastic components, increasing the lifespan of the fragile plastic parts without affecting the performance of the cooling system. The top of the cap is CNC machined from 6061 aluminum, hard anodized black to prevent corrosion, and then laser etched so it looks cool.
