All M54 3.0's have the same CCV but not all burn oil.

Explain that one.
I thought I explained this (more than once) in my "Personal Break-In Theory" diatribe....

IMHO. it`s just ANOTHER "Diabolical Device" (added to a long list of other DDs) that is destined for early failure on these cars....
There are MANY first-time BMW buyers (mostly non-DIYers) who get into their ownership before doing the necessary research, and quickly become disillusioned when the repair bills start mounting up (they thought "German engineering" would save the day....)
Most of these people will NEVER buy another BMW....

Attachment 559836

Does anyone know where this hose that's right in the middle of the screen connects to? I connected the Cvv lit up and even put back the throttle body and forgot about this piece and have no idea where it goes. It has one of those squish tabs on the top left of the screen and its slipped to the car itself near the bottom right. This is all I need to finish this project up. Lmao. Thanks!
are you referring to the hose with the F connector? that goes on the inake hose
