Vanos Seal Replaced

Just want to thank Charlie and the crew again for changing that damn Vanos seal.

The car feels totally different now!

He even changed a worn out coil boot for nothing.

Great service and great price

Proud to have your sticker on my car

Sounds like the seal may solve your problem.

I replaced mine because my vanos was jammed.

I gained a lot of power back after the change.

Where did you get the seal from? Did you get the Dr. Vanos kit?
