its ok guys, ive just looked and mine has twin vanos, so i believe its the M52TU engine.

i can relax now. :D
Yep, that's right.

The affected engines were fitted to cars with a build date prior to March 1998. Note, it's important to check the build date not the registration date!

Whilst they are probably best avoided many nikasil engines have gone on to cover huge mileages.

I'll have a quick search and add a link to this thread in a minute.
