Sorry to hear about this. My car is going in for cam/followers replacement as well, but the wear isn't as severe as yours. This really should be a wake up to anyone out there with their warranty about to expire to go get their cam cover removed for a visual inspection of the cam lobes on the intake cam even if you don't have any outward signs/symptoms of cam or follower wear.My car has been with a mechanic for a few weeks. When it first was taken apart, the apparent problem was one cam shaft (intake side?) was badly worn, while the other was ok. It also ended up that the Rocker arms on that side were badly worn too, allowing these little shims, that sit below the rockers to space them correctly, to simply fall off. One of them fell off and it caused a valve to bend in and dent the hell out of the cylinder head/cylinder. I think it was the number 3 cylinder for reference. The mechanic should be finishing pretty soon, but i have to tell you, for a "bullet proof" engine, this scared the hell out of me. About $1,400 in parts, and a little over $2,000 in labor. 4 months out of warranty, lol.
