    I'm currently driving a e90 320d. 2006. From what I can gather they are not the quietest of Diesel engines. I was told that redex oil treatment will Reduce the noise. I believe it just thickens your oil. Well and additive's etc. I know some car manufacturers actually Tell people to but thicker...

    Hi Guys, I've been struggling to find much information on RedEx Fuel System Petrol Cleaner so I thought I'd start a new thread on it, please don't shoot me down.

  5. BMW 8 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E31
    I saw a feature on 5th gear the other night. They used redex on an old hot hatch or something and the bhp went up by 5. I am assuming that fuel economy might have improved a touch too. Has anyone used this stuff? Is it safe? I remember buying an engine flush years ago for an old v8 I had and...

    I poured half a bottle of the REDEX injector cleaner into my 2005 523i and for some reason, the fuel consumption has gone way up from 8L/100 km to 9.5 L/100km. Any one knows the reason? Engine is running really smooth though.

    I have a 2005 118d. I stupidly misread the bottle of diesel redex. Correct ammount is half a bottle to a 50 litre full tank. I stupidly put half a bottle to half a tank 25 litres (twice as much?). The car ran fine before this, but after a few miles. I shut off the engine and once a tried to...

    I know there has been lots of discussion on this in the past but I wanted to add my 2p's! I have been using redex recently to clean out any mucky crap I can as my 535 has now done 78k.

    Hi everyone! I just bought a 1993 325i SE, it has 130k miles, and I'm just doing those little jobs I can to make sure it's at its best. Now, I was thinking that to give the engine, injectors, fuel pump etc a good flush I could use some redex additive. then I read on here that premium petrols...
