Customer Question

Hi I would like to know about the risk caused by the 'faulty' manifold flaps being sucked into the engine on the 320d M sports, is this still an issue for 2008 models?

320d m sport E90 177bhp

A 2008 320d used the N47 engine which does not have huge swirl flap issues like earlier engine do. The potential for trouble still exists, but the chances are much lower than with the older designed engines.
