The labor is also a little intensive as it needs to access the interior of the motor. You most certainly want an experienced mechanic and I would avoid a dealer at all costs. One other important point is it is also common to have the throttle sensors fail. They are also expensive for parts and labor. If you are in or near New York, I have an excellent expert mechanic for an E60 who is extremely reasonable in his rates and fair in his opinions.

If you need the wholesale parts company for the genuine BMW throttle actuators PM me. The mechanics information (he is on this board - M5 Deamon is his name).

I would never recommend going through this process and installing a used part(s). I went through this whole thought process and examining all options only to confront the truth - once confirmed - gotta grin and bear it as part of the love/hate relationship with our beloved S85 engines.

You may also want to try fast attack motorsports, which is a sponsor of this forum. They have actuators for around 650, IIRC

What is IIRC?

The problem is not even paying to replace the actuators, it is the fact that am not sure 100% that is the issue with the check engine light as i have heard people keep changing several things and the light keeps coming up..so am just afraid spending that kind of money and then seeing it doesn't solve the problem

Got your PM, thanks a lot. Since i can't reply to your PM for some reason m5board wont allow me as of yet.

Here is my reply.
#####

Just checked he is 45 miles away from me

#1. One quick question, what happens if it happens its not the throttle actuators? Can one return it for refund?

#2.Also does the throttle actuator comes with warranty? how long?


The main scary thing for me is i dont want to spend money and it happens its not the throttle actuators. You get my situation right?

Thanks

Unfortunately am not a mechanic to do that myself, and i doubt there is any mechanic that will spent time to try stuffs like that for someone.

To be honest i want to fix whatever is wrong with this car WITHOUT spending/wasting money on any wrong thing. That is what am scared of.

Get the codes from a dealer or someone who has the kit to get error codes and post them up here...

before you buy anything pull the codes if you dont have a code reader you should invest in one.

i910-II by icarsoft about a 100.00

icarly for bmw .... this runs bluetooth from obdII to you phone nice interface and easy to use.

i was able to pull .... reset faults etc small price to pay if you are having issues saving lots of time and money .... your car can tell you whats wrong with her if you can talk to her

I can buy the recommended(by you) "i910-II by icarsoft" but when i buy it as i am not a mechanic and not even close, so how do i use it to get the error code?

I am am certainly going to buy that thing if i can actually use it.

Thanks man, appreciate it.
