Hi, I have looked all over the internet I cant find info about my car having the issue of swirl flap failure.

I have a E91 320d 2009 lci N47 engine

I found this on the realoem site it has the flaps but does it have the issue:

You're on the right page of realoem. The swirl flaps (on that model) are vacuum operated and inside the manifold. That's about all us USA/CA people know, because we don't get that model. I have read that early ones had a problem with the flaps breaking off and trashing the engine (intake valves). Be sure to search the UK and EU sites when looking for advice; we can't give much from this side of the Atlantic (the ones on our 335d/X5d are much different.)

Good luck.
