Intake valve cleaning possible group buy

Feeler:
Looking for atleast (4) people including me that would be interested in having intake valve cleaning done on their car to help get a group buy price of $275. The intake cleaning is done using the bmw tool and walnut shell. If you want new gaskets they are added in at cost. Mechanic located in lakeland.

Also when in the future, need to get catchcan before this.

Anybody have some before and after pics?

I took my intake manifold off to change out my starter, and even at 100K miles, my valves, though never cleaned, were absolutely spotless.
Just curious what other folk's intake valves look like that they need walnut blasting.

you post this statement multiple times, and multiple times i wonder why no one has told you this.

N52 engines, like the one in your car, are not direct injected. therefore, gasoline washes over the valves and keeps them clean.

you never need your valves cleaned.
