Rod Bearings Vancouver

Thanks to everyone for the useful information regarding RG and kits from Turner. I've been sending out oil samples to Blackstone and have consistent 3 ppm lead and 2 ppm copper (08 E90 M3, 77 k KM). Does anyone who replaced rod bearings have data from Blackstone or another lab? I know that for the later M3s the bearing material changed, and you won't see any lead readings.

I have followed most of the threads on E9x M3 rod bearing problems, and as soon as a I see any noticeable increase in lead and copper I will change bearings, probably to BE. I will probably do the work myself, however I'm not sure it is feasible to do the job without a hoist. Some people on the forums said they could do the job just with jack stands, but I have jacked the car up and I'm not sure that I can get the car high enough to lower the suspension components. Has anyone done this job without a hoist?

Depending on your mileage you might want to consider changing the motor mounts too. The oem mounts will start break down around 80,000 - 90,000km. Changing the mounts out while doing the RB adds maybe 15 minutes of work.

Wait I am confused... so youíre getting new mounts with the kit you got, but in a few months youíre going to spend another $1000+ on labour to change to a different mount?

New motor mounts, the old ones already have several small cracks.

LOL, what's the rush? I have a warranty until August 2019. Next time at VCM here in Victoria I will ask him how many E92 M3 bearing replacements he has done. When I do decide to get them replaced I want someone experienced.

ItsGary, your bearings look like they were ready for replacement. Good timing!

Smart choice, I believe MaximusB and I got our bearings replaced by the same guy, name is Shawn
