All other service was done at Lonestar BMW in Austin, this is my first time taking over.

Do dealers set them tight to keep the noise level down?

Does the spec I state above (.075mm/.15mm) so tight that damage might have occurred?

Notwithstanding the single value .15mm and .30mm spec, I assume there is actually a range. What is that range?

Any body else see a problem with this?
