Nice work, did you need to replace any gaskets during the overhaul?

Thanks - The thermostat housing comes with a new lip seal in place and the EGR 'stat has a new o-ring and other than those no other gaskets are needed...

Posssibly, marginally! Don't do huge miles so it will take a while to tell. Also I have started using climate control and lights more now as it is getting colder/darker which will have a negative effect on mpg. However I watched the temp rise whilst using the heater from cold and it defintely warms up better/faster even with the heater on. When I used to run the heater I wouldn't see any higer than around 80 deg c on my commute but now it does get up to temp...

Will resurrect this thread. I have 320d with the same type MAF. Wanted to clean it with MAF cleaner but was not able to remove the plastic cover mentioned above. Tried to clean it anyway, but I doubt that the cleaner ever reached the sensor.

Could you elaborate on how to remove that circular cover? It just does not move at all.

BTW, my BMW drives the same with MAF and without it. Does that mean that it is not working as it should anymore?
