2008 535xi car loses fuel when going between 65-75 just randomly on the highway. You press gas and nothing happen, then it starts driving fine again.

We thought it was coil pack as there is misfire on 1 and 4. mechanic replaced both coil pack and the issue still exist.

Now they want to replace all 6 fuel injectors. parts alone is $1600.

Question are there any other known solutions

and can you use remanufactured injectors

thank you

If your build date of your car is as cited below, see if the injectors have already been replaced under the recall.

Check the injectors’ production date/serial numbers (using the DMC scanner) and replace if required.
