    Welcome.

    Glad you enjoyed the drive.

    I am sure someone will be along soon to advise you on swirl flap removal to ensure engine longevity....

    Welcome in. Was it a foot to the floor blast, or sit back and chill drive?
    There's a wealth of information here. Hope you enjoy the car.
    Clear your heads and get ready to run.
    Remember, the best times are yet to come.

    Ronnie / Techies ..... help !!!

    I don't have any experience personally, but, from my limited knowledge, BMW diesels contain flaps which get ingested into the engine and wreck the engine. These can be replaced as a preventative measure by blanks. There are numerous threads on here, I am sure some of the guys with more knowledge can help....guys ?

    This thread may give some insight...
