Anyone in the South near to me had this done recently? Looking for a recommended place to get it sorted

I had it done at ETA Motorsport near Brands Hatch. Well, I took a modified valve to have them fit it. Well recommended, they're a great bunch who know M cars inside out.

It is very easy (by all accounts) I only went there because I'm very, very lazy.

So i ordered a CDV, 6 WEEKS ago :tumbleweed: , and i finally get a call from my dealer yesterday to say it has arrived.

I went home n found an old drill bit and i started to hit the piston through the bottom of the valve, but the drill bit was the only part that came through the bottom. not happy. :headbang:

what to do now - keep attacking this new CDV and try to destroy the piston or take out the original and hope that one at least works out ok. I was more interested in just deleting it and replacing the CDV and rubber line with a new braided hose, but i cant seem to get a hold of one.

Does anyone know where to get the braided lines from? have been searching everywhere.

Just got my car back from an inspection 2 service and got the CDV removed. So much better! It was simply removed and the two pipes joined to one another.

I had it done as part of an inspection 2 service and an MOT so don't know. He charges £60 per hour, and I can't see it taking more than 30 minutes to be honest.

If you give him a call and say you'd like the same thing done as Leon had, he'll be able to tell you - 01306 713232

I'm looking for someone in the East Mids or South Yorks area to do my M. Got the modified CDV from Zeckhausen, just trying to find someone I trust to fit it.
