Vy Calais international l67
Hey guys I’m in need of a bit of help anyway I bought a l67 recently and gave her a service last night and noticed tiny flecks of metal in the oil. Any ideas as to what it might be would be appreciated I attached some photos for reference

Probably bearing material, could have also wiped out a cam lobe, either way that amount of metal at that size is not good.

That level of metal is the end of the engine, it will need to be torn down.

I wouldn't even be turning the key on it like that, you've got more chances of grenading/siezing it then you won't be able to rebuild it, it will be an expensive doorstop.
