Huh? I never posted this before, have I? Am I losing my marbles?

But thanks for clearing this up

For me to buy the blaster and media even on the cheap, if I did this on my own I would barely break even with this price. To have someone who has done it, handle the hard work while I stare and get in the way the whole time works for me.

I have a E90 328i. I want to get this done due to bad gas mileage. Possible?

I think someone else answered this better earlier in this thread by user:

you never need your valves cleaned.

This is a killer price. I just had my valves cleaned about 10k ago though. I'd recommend this to anyone that has an N54 and hasn't got it done within the last 35-40k miles. I've been running meth almost the entire life of my car and my valves still looked like absolute crap after 50k.

You should do this whether you are stock or modded if you are anywhere near 50k miles and haven't had it done before.
