The M57 utilizes Bosch piezo injectors which are among the fastest available. This enables multiple open/closure fuel injection cycles during each compression/ignition event. On the weak side they are not as durable as the magnetic driven ones.

There are other piezo injectors available but all are application specific. You may buy service parts from other brands but none will fit the M57. Even if any is 'mountable', the sofware will either not recognize them or will require adpatations that would impact emissions/performance.
That means you will get into bigger problem than the one you are trying to address.

Thanks. I wasn't very familiar with how injectors fit specific cars. Good to know that we have Bosch and that they are rated as one of the best available.
Enjoy what you drive.
