at 70k you definitely need it. I have done a car with roughly 36k on it and they were not as bad as cars with 60 plus but there was definitely carbon build up. You will notice an increase in MPG throttle response smoother idle and some have seen an increase in hp by a little. You should definitely consider doing it..

Check the diesel subforum. More than a few owners had heads and intakes replaced under warranty due to carbon build-up. Also reported on Bimmerfest.

Luther what would something like that cost - I am real curious to see what's going on in there given all of these other carbon build-up issues on the d.
