Big Price increase on Disa Valves

Not sure if this has hit your area yet, but just heard from a BMW mechanic that prices on the Disa valve for M52tu & M54 motors went up ~$100. Now, it's listed @$340. Shop guy got burned b/c he found out pricing changed after collecting on the work.

I suppose if you need a Disa down the road, could always get a rebuild kit, or go w/ a Dorman aftermarket for 1/2 the price, or just disable that dumb thing.

glad mine's a good old iron block M52 motor. no Disa...
