    Yes, many have used them to get their swirl flap blanks. Peter the owner is an ex BMW tech and they are a well renowned indy specialist

    You have a M57 so worth doing. Modified cartridge flaps fitted to the late N2 revision of your engine.

    I can thoroughly recommend them, they look after my E60 530d and have always been very professional. Reasonable rates and very helpful. I've just had both thermostats done by them and it's now sitting at around 93C.

    Why would you want the swirl flaps removed? Save me asking them the question..?

    You should google the term my friend and read the horror stories behind a poor design where flaps become detached and drop into the manifold intake leading to a written off engine.

    mines a 2005 530d - same engine mate (minus the extra turbo & horses) - same swirl flaps - same time bomb or potentially nothing to worry about!!!!
    if your having the main thermostat replaced - get the flaps done at the same time!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
