I'll ask the shop tomorrow. But the price is around 200 Eur whereas the old one was only 100.

How are they not compatible? Wouldn't they require a software update then?

I'm not really keen to shell out around over 1200 EUR just because BMW can't get stuff done right the first time.

The 079 is not compatible with the 261 per a recent DCS message. Also the 261s are being phased out so the only thing that will be availble soon are the 079s. That being said, if you need 1 079 you need to replace all 6 injectors since you cannot mix them.

Another note to mention. When you do get a new 079 injector and you check the injector itself it will say 261-11 it will not have the 079 part # on it FYI.

Like mentioned they "claim" its a better internal fitering and the thermo compenstating oil
