I am also interested in a set of 4 at the proposed prices.

Does anyone have any idea when these will be ready to ship out?

Thanks for all your support.

Latest update:
I should get a small batch from the manufacturer on Dec 28 and with shipping time taken into account, I should be able to have them in stock in early Jan. This is earlier than I thought. But the bad news is there are only 200 of valves in this batch. With next batch delivery time still unknown...

One more update is regarding the special tool, the Torx 20 bit(83300495134), I was told by BMW dealership that there are 6 of them in the entire world now. With my order, they will need to manufacture more of those and there is no clear visibility on that. I might have to come up with some aftermarket options for that Torx bit as well.

Also to answer some of your questions:
Yes, it would be shipped worldwide with your preferred carrier, either USPS/EMS, UPS, FedEx, or DHL. It will be sold on eBay, Amazon, and my own website, whichever way is convenient for you. More details to come with the exact on sale dates and channels as we are getting closer to later this month or the first week of Jan.

That bit looks easy to manufacture yourself and shouldn't cost $30 each either.

It looks like it started out as a regular T-20 socket and they just ground it down on a lathe

Here is the BMW tool I've had for a few years back when I replaced my solenoids at 130.00 each. Got it from ECS Tuning.
