Inline thermostat mod to fix the gearbox heat exchanger write up.

Yeah I had seen that but it's a Cordierite one and BMW say to use SIC ones, anyone know a reason not to go for the cheaper option apart from it being half the price of Silicon Carbide?

A snippet, seems the combined units should have SIC DPF's

What are they made from?

  • Cordierite DPFs look very similar to Catalytic Converters and are mostly used in additive systems in conjunction with Diesel Oxidisation Catalysts. They are often used in aftermarket products and can be found in our standard DPF range.
  • Silicon Carbide (Sic) DPFs are constructed from small sections cemented together. They are more commonly used in O.E and Catalysing DPFs and are classed as a BM Premium product due to their high thermal and strength endurance

I did see on the BM homepage something about their premium range, so perhaps they will be releasing one in the future

Not sure m8, might give them a ring and see as they are local to me anyway.

Odd that they don't list the 535d part number 18308508523 though.

I ran a few part numbers and the 535 DPF while looking the same isn't, I assume it allows more flow due to the higher output.

 

 

I got all excited that I could fit a new DPF for under £300 for 10 minutes there :lol:

 

Walker ones are about £600... :blink:

Unfortunately this part BM reference BM11101 is currently in development until September 2018.
 

 

I did offer to be a test car for a discount ;)
