    agree the more mileage and older motor more use out of it, seems as they state that its third generation and can be used on common rail pumps...hard to tell, never tried it

    Just be careful what you sling in a modern car, there are far too many modern materials that don't react well to unknown substances. Modern manufacturing techniques have improved beyond recognition and so the best way to make an engine last longer is change the oil with a quality synthetic product on a regular basis. You just don't see piston slap and big end failure on new cars (well rarely) where as olders car needed an engine rebuild with new piston rings and crank bearings after 70k miles.

    The block on a modern BMW diesel will last for ever, the array of complex injectors, turbos and electronics tends to go first which can only be delayed by good maintenence not prevented

    had worst experience in my modern automotive life and damn it was my favorite E39 525d with unexplained intake flap design, 2 got sucked and ruined head and piston, juicy bill was painfull. strangly enough most none runners or spares repairs for sale are modern diesel cars with engine problems. i might just get one for wifes 406 hdi as its very lumpy on cold starts, tried most additives from halfords without results,and see will it make diffrence, will let know ...hope my marriage remains

    Join the club, it happens too often to be honest, as you will see most of us here remove the swirl flaps on the 1999-2005 diesels if fitted

    well had a go on wifes 406 hdi and i have to say - possitive results. Engine was always running rough on cold starts, and it seem very lumpy once you start moving until it reach normal temp. poured in rvs to engine and one for pump treatment to fuel, next morning no probs at all and its like this since, wife is happy
