Someone correct me if I am wrong, but this is not necessary for 328i.
Only needed for FI cars like the 335i.

You are right. I did read about it after I posted this topic. Apparently the N54 engines are directed injected while the N52 engine in our cars are fuel injected through the valves. So the fuel itself cleans the valves and intake area.

Doesn't seem so... but we have an experienced technician who can help out in Houston for a great price (better than indy and dealer prices, trust me)

I sometimes travel to Houston from San Antonio. Could you provide me with the information, price and contact please? I found an indy shop that does this service here in San Antonio, but the price is a bit high. Thanks in advance.

^ Sammy_0559 on the boards... you can PM him.

I am looking for valve cleaning too.

I have a friend in Dallas I can drive up and see and have it done.

Wish there was a place in Austin to get this done for the $250 Sammy charges.

Looks like it. Guess I'm going to Houston soon, as I'm having hesitation problems and I'm not even on Stage 2 Aggressive.

I'm going to get my done at German Car Specialists, formerly known at DBC Tuning on the NW side of SA. It's not as inexpensive as the deal in Houston but it does come with an oil change and I'm always happy to support a local indy.
