What is the cost of new ones versus refurbishing with shipping?

There was a guy I recall on the bimmer.org boards (sorry, I like all German engineering on two and four wheels) who has a great reputation for cleaning and re-building injectors. He even gets them all to flow within a close tolerance of each other. This is important. And, he provides charts of the before and after flows.

I am sorry I do not recall his name but if you either search or ask on the E23 board at this site, I'm sure someone will help. I'm pretty sure this fellow does all European models including Italian and German.

Good luck.

If I remember, correctly (not a strong point), I paid $45 ea and bought the seal assy's at the dealer for about 20 bucks. The dealer wanted $90 ea for the injectors. Ouch.

I don't believe anyone can really "rebuild" injectors. There are services that claim to clean them but that's a highly debated subject as well.

If going the cleaning route here are two recommended services:

http://www.rceng.com/Fuel-Injector-Cleaning-P43C0.aspx

http://www.injector.com/injectorservice.php?PHPSESSID=c5f615c738980dc38c1cace8737cb22d


There are places to purchase injectors inexpensively but out of respect for our host I will not post a link.
