I've been told once to refrain myself from cam discussions but at least I'll share the information I have.
The BMW service bulletin that is floating around here in Germany is from July 1980 and it says:

The position of the key slot of the cam is changed by three degrees.
The timing numbers show an advance of six degrees with respect to the crank.

Nockenwelle 0°
Nockenwelle 3°
Einlaß öffnet 32° vOT
Einlaß öffnet 38° vOT
Einlaß schließt 52° nUT
Einlaß schließt 46° nUT
Auslaß öffent 52° vUT
Auslaß öffnet 58° vUT
Auslaß schließt 32° nOT
Auslaß schließt 26° nOT

Are these specs correct?
These are the same numbers shown here:

Anyone ever checked them?
