Too big valve clearance is not good either. When the clearance is too big, the
valve is not "cushioned" off by the valve train, and the result is that the
valve's head can snap off. It happened to my brothers Type1, and it was not a
pretty sight, and quite expensive too (yes, it was #3 exhaust).

The 0,15 mm clearance is to be adjusted at cold engine, when the engine heats
up, it will be 0,0 mm, effectively.
