    afaik 1500rpm is around the mark where the EGR shuts off and the turbo is kicking in, make sure the EGR is cleaned out when you have the swirl flaps replaced
    just to eliminate it as the the possible fault.

    Diesel engine only flaps that open and shut at certain engine loads, with no prior warning they very rarely break off
    and ingest into the engine causing £1000's of damage.
    Thats why most recommended to remove them and negate the risk, as small as it is.

    Quick update been running the car now for nearly 2 weeks and do I wish I had bought one earlier! I do a 35 mile trip each way to work and back every day and am averaging 60 MPG....Had all the suggested mods done ie swirl flaps crank breather and oil and filter change and am now contemplating the re map....I'm not only 15 miles down the road from AP tuning anyone had there's remapped there and had good result's?

    Oh and big thank's to everyone's comment's and suggestion's here's one of mine if everyone who is a member here paid a £1 subscription every month would more than cover the cost of the site for the very help full service it provide's I would be happy to pay!

    Cheers from one happy BMW owner!
