Looks like a deal @ $350 barely used.
Ok ... this was less than half what I paid with deep discount at the BMW dealer ... so for someone trying to get to Index 12s and wasn't ready to drop $800+, $350 looked like a decent deal.
If you are fine with it, then there is no problem.
I'm just saying when it comes to injectors, I would only buy new and bmw branded.
As a matter of fact, I would not accept these injectors even if they were free and shipping was paid. It's just not worth the hassle for me mentally. I like knowing every single thing that is going on my car. But that's just me.
Sure there are. But like I said, I don't want to mess with buying them them testing them. They may be fine but that's a gamble. And if they arare w not fine, then I have no desire to argue with the seller. Then I have to do the injector job all over again.That is a bit extreme. There are plenty of ways to test injectors. Nothing special about them.
Just wondering how you know it’s time to replace the injectors? I’m pretty sure mine are original 64K miles from 2008. Maybe I get some rough starts after the car sits for a few days, but the car starts nice and smooth afterwards.
Whoa! Sounds pretty good. Any logs before/afterwards? I’ve had to increase my scalars a lot for my 93 octane tune just to keep STFTs in check. I wonder if needing to increase scalars is a telltale sign that my injectors are getting tired?The dealership replaced mine on my previous engine when I noticed weird sputtering upon acceleration and longer starts. They were not index 12 so they replaced them. After that, the car felt BRAND SPANKING NEW and super powerful. It kept spinning out from stop lights...was insane.

I finally purchased new injectors and will be installing them when I replace my valve cover gasket this weekend. I live near a dealer so I called them first for pricing - $300/ea! So I purchased the kit from FCP Euro since it’s apparenrly still “on sale” for about $960. Each of the six boxes were in fine shape - all -079 index 12.
Looking back at my repair records I had two of my original (2008) injectors replaced in 2011 with index 7’s. So the other 4 are probably index 5? Hopefully I’ll notice big improvement.
