Oh ya. I got it now.

So is this $120 for a new solenoid? Or reman or what? I'm going to play sceptical here till something awesome happens then ill be all up on Sophie.

I changed my o rings recently and I brought all 4 of mine from no good to about .60-.72 which I was pleased with. It got rid of crappy starting and warm idle fluctuating.

LOL, that is totally fine. This community will be much better off. It is a total rip-off without competition.

$120 is for a brand new solenoid. No refurbish, no reman. As I said, I have two of these solenoids running on my beast for 3+ months and everything is awesome thus far.

Also...slightly off topic...do the original OEM Vanos solenoids have a black body and aftermarket have a silver body? Just curious, I've seen a few Vanos DIY on here and it appears that original equipment Vanos solenoids may have been black. All (4) of mine are silver. Just wondering if those were replaced at some point by previous owner...I know the engine was replaced in 2011 with a new BMW engine, maybe it would have came with new solenoids?
Good observation. Very originally, I believe these solenoids start with black body, but the latest OEM solenoids have a silver body, so do my aftermarket ones.
