Here's to the thought that BMW did see a spike in issues with Valeo evaporators and made a change for the better.
Unfortunately, they have not been REPLACED. Some units do have denso evaporators, but most have valeo. And there's no real way of knowing which your car is equipped with without disassembly.
I do not know if they're actually interchangeable, and weve never actually replaced a denso unit.
It's standard procedure to install what came out.
