The only thing I remember reading about these was that if you had an high mileage BMW that had them fitted it was best to remove them because with age they were prone to falling apart and ending up in the combustion chamber :eek:

Not a good thing.

The 651 doesn't really suffer with issues with the swirl flaps. My Viano with a 651 has 210,000 on it and the flaps were wear free when I recently took the manifold off.
