    I have just had the CDV valve removed today what a difference it makes the car is so much better to drive its no longer jerky and hard to hold the revs. I would definatly recomend this to anyone

    All I can say is don't dump your clutch on a regular basis. The delay valve was fitted to avoid that .

    Cool. Do normal E46's have those shields below the gearbox - or is it just the M3's? This might be this coming weekend's task - I never knew about the CDV, but I experience all the symptoms. I bought the gearchange bushes a couple of weeks ago, so they'll be done at the same time

    I think there is some sort of sheild under the gearbox but i could be wrong. It will be even better for you if you track daying your car its tonnes nicer to drive now
