Not a bad deal at all. Stuff works great on my 330i, whenever I have had the intake off and looked at valves they are shiny clean.

Yea but it's not all about the valves, if it keep my injectors happy that's great too. It is a fuel injector cleaner.

I also used half of one bottle to soak my VANOS solenoids, that code is gone now.

Good stuff, I use it in my 330i also; it effectively killed my rough idle problems. I probably won't take advantage of this deal cause I've already got 7-8 bottles stashed away from previous deals, but good looking out.

Thanks for the post. Yeah i agree. Works great on my 330 also. I try to pour a bottle every 3 months or so.

Last summer we had a local deal in so. Ca where it was 2 for 1. It was at the auto zone stores i believe. I always wonder which one to get since there is one called "Fuel injector cleaner"and also fuel " system cleaner". I have bought only the injector cleaner. Never tried the other one.

will fuel injector cleaner work better than brake cleaner? After reading your post i started reading about cleaning my vanos and i want to do it as preventative maint. since i just bought mine used.

BMW even recommends using their Fuel System Cleaner every 3000mi (at least in the NA cars) - the BMW cleaner is simply the Chevron Techron Fuel System Cleaner rebranded for BMW & then they charge 2X the price

I use it every 3K miles - does it help? IDK, but I bought a crapload of it back when AA had a 2-fer sale...
