E90 pcv valve heater recall

 Ok I know this recall has been out for awhile, the PCV valve heater recall well the dealer are just starting to get the new updated parts finally,,,,the PCV valve here pictured sit right in the middle of the intake manifold on the  inside next to the engine block,,,you have to remove the air filter box the drive belt and the alternator,,,,so you can reach around and remove the torque screws. Here is the new updated PCV heater valve , there is no visible different with the old and new,,,interesting thing BMW doesn’t want us to put any grease or spray on the o-ring seal when installing the new part due to the heat of the PCV valve heater.

    • The blower motor recall we have not gotten any parts for that yet,,,,we have to check the wiring and plug connector at the final stage at the blower,,,,we have to see if the wiring is burnt and repair the wiring and connector and maybe a new final stage

    OK. Off topic. I just finished perusing 2018-2016 archives and I have to say it was a great read for someone who likes the brand. I have a question about aftermarket tunes. The forums are full of guys saying that BMW will restore a factory warranty if a tune has been removed and one the salesmen for CPO cars said that same when he tried to get me into a CPO M3 (Can someone say spun-crank hub and never mind the fact that BMW hasn’t built a reliable engine for the M3 in almost 20 years!!!).

    Do you have anything to add regarding BMWNA’s stance on factory warranty for formerly tuned cars?

    • This is a tuff one, BMW doesn’t liked aftermarket tuned car unless it’s Dinan tune, see the problem is some of these tuners don’t care about what the engine can handle,,,the tuner just cares about making the most horsepower they can for the happy customer.,,,some time these engine are over rev,d and they lean out to make more horsepower causing more damage,,,,don’t get me wrong I like to drive a tuned M cars
