    I took my 2005 530 (Manual) in for service due to emissions warning. After a day of diagnosis, (lean mixture, rich mixture, O2 sensor, both banks) the dealer indicated a bad cyclonic separator. I can not find this part at Bav Auto. Is this an expensive repair?

    Yeah that's it. The dealer performed part of this under warranty but chaged me for the hoses. If the hoses are all plugged up, I do not understand why these would not be covered. i could understand that they want to be safe and replace the hoses as a precaution due to age, and I would agree that this is a reasonable request but that is likely not the case due to what I have read about this. They also indicated that the valve was $1600 but this is not what Bav Auto sells these for. In fact the entire kit is only $169.
