I'm contemplating the dipstick guide as well. I was going to just clean it, but since it's been redesigned, might be worthwhile, while there doing the CCV.

Has anyone used this complete winter kit? They have a kit without throttle body ring, ICV grommet, etc. for $122, but heard the throttle body good to replace. But I have not seen anyone recommend the ICV grommet. The boot is probably good since there could be a crack somewhere (i guess).

Bluebee, where did you find the dipstick guide for $41. The cheapest I've found it was $71 (BAVAUTO was almost $90). I'd rather clean it and save money, but if if others replace it while doing CCV, I'd probably do the same.

I'm not sure if the CCV is original or not, but some of the hoses say BMW and look a little worn. I can't tell about the CCV itself. Also, the CCV hoses are winter ones. Interesting that if it is the winter version, that it went bad.
