I am still concerned that this replacement will not screw up the engine I am a newbie to the car mechanical world so forgive my stupidity
Very interesting that BMW is going to replace the head. That was my fix with no problems...Still 100%.

However, I still find it confusing that BMW now in allot of cases is replacing the rockers as the new fix, and you get the new head?

Thumbs up on the new head.

Until I hear proof that the new rockers are the real solution, due to the lack of oil flow in the N52, I will stay with my position of the new redesigned head as the real fix.

Best of luck.

Keep the thread up to date.
