I was wondering if NCC does any specialty BMW tool rentals, similar to other BMWCCA clubs around the country?

Specifically, I'm looking for the S14/S38 double ended valve tappet for the E30 M3. I could shell out the $100+ for it, but if there was some way to contribute to the local chapter too/instead, I'd much rather do that.

If not, is there any interest in that type of program?


Thanks for any help!

That's too bad...

Koala rents a whole kit but it would make more sense just to buy the tool at that rate and I would've rather somehow supported NCC if it was available locally. :icon_asha

Would anyone be willing to rent one out?

Yup. I just wanted to check locally first.

Thanks!

The other thing is to buy it, and then let people know you have it for loan, or rent.

The way a group of us has been doing it, is that when we do a job using my garage, the owner of the car buys any special tools, then they get donated to the group for future projects. And with 9 BMWs amoung 4 people, we will have LOTS of projects. :)

Yes would love to see or hear from someone that has a Vanos locking tool so I can replace my M50 cams with my S50 units.

Buy the tool, come up to my garage and use it. Leave the tool. It WILL be used again. :)

BTW the person whose car is being worked on buys lunch. :)
