  1. I realised mine does shift even more weird when it regens so you are right with what you saying. The app is not available for apple users by the looks of it.

    Professional carbon cleaning

    Its a machine that looks like a deep fat fryer but instead you put cleaning solution in it which it heats up and using very small vibrations which cleans whatever its in it. Thats what it is in a nutshell. in the video you seen (if its the same one i seen) they send the manifold for ultrasonic cleaning and comes back looking like new as Matthew said.

    Matthew that was purely for people who wants it done, if i am doing it all my self i am buying my own ultrasonic cleaner, always wanted one! Also how big is your ultrasonic cleaner, i am thinking of doing this to F10 but also in the market for a F15 which will need doing so need one big enough can fit manifold in.

    Professional carbon cleaning

    I have been looking at carbon cleaning a lot lately but i think these solution based fixes are temporary unless they are done regularly to avoid build up at first place. I think best combo is send the inlet manifold for a ultrasonic cleaning and blast the inlet valves. Wall nut blasting scares me little bit, i found out that a product called Tunap does granules that comes with a neutralising spray so less risky compare to walnut shells. I am not disputing the effects of doing it with wallnuts and if its done right by competent people there is no risk but thats my personal opinion on the matter and i have been looking at doing this my self instead of getting as a service.

    Is dealer ripping me off???

    I would personally pick up on if the gasket is cracked why you changing the cover, if the cover is cracked its not made of rubber. I remember a conversation when the knocking noise coming from mine i thought maybe an exhaust bush or something and they said if it was that it wouldn't be covered under auc. I still think they dont have a case to argue for the cover.

    Is dealer ripping me off???

    I am not sure of that one for this scenario. I had the same sentence when local dealer to me couldn't diagnose the fault after 4 different attempts on my steering rack but each time they were very keen to return the car to me despite me saying i would be rather get the problem resolved with them keeping it longer than me having to take the car to them. Logic dictates if they mean what they say then they would try hard to find the fault as they get paid but that wasn't the case! However this was a busy period of all the e series being called for battery leads and a few other bibs and bobs so they might be making more money doing those as workshop was always overbooked..

    poor fuel economy

    I think an egr sticking would hurt your economy but i presume they would of tested it to see if it sticks or not. Is it main dealer you visited? Is the warranty with BMW?
