Anyone had valve clearance checked?

Got 13K miles on my S. Everything works great. I do my own regular maintenance, and prefer to stay away from dealers. I do NOT want a dealer messing with the software. I've had NO upgrades, and plan to keep it that way. I don't want the dealer plugging in any diagnostic crap. I really don't trust "software" telling me when to adjust the valves.

Anyway, have any of you had the valves checked? Any adjustment needed? What mileage?

Thanks.

valves at 12K

Just had 12k service done and although the computer "told" the shop to check valves they were right on target and required no adjusting.
