Icon1 Remanufactured index 12 injectors??? - 06-03-2017, 02:14 PM

Guys

Anyone tried these index 12 remanufactured injectors with 1 year warrenty (tested with decouplers and seals) from ebay for around $400-500

Are they any good?







Since im thinking of changing my factory index 6 ones
Im sure they are effecting power since my trims arent stable..

Sounds a bit sketchy. Looks like that guy doesn't have any seller reviews. I would pay the extra roughly $400 and get brand new injectors.

I would be leery with them. I wonder what remanufactured really means on this offering. Also, if there are no caps on the nozzle seals you'll have to buy a tool to compress them.

Personally, I'd only go with new injectors index 12 with the caps. Also don't forget the decouplers too. They are easy to put in just remember to code them with INPA once installed. Good luck.

I haven't checked them since I put them in but they seem to be holding up. For power I'm just on map 1 my logs are kinda messed up right now something is wrong with my car but I don't think its fuel related

They come with decouplers and caps. Personally I like to buy new things but I was kinda on a budget and couldn't afford to pay $800 when I needed new injectors so I went with these.

Most of those "remanufactured" injectors have never been properly reman'd. So essentially they're fake. If you search through this forum and the other forum, you'll read about many serious nightmares that people have had. I am a supporter of saving money where possible, but this is one area that I would not try to save on. Faulty injectors can cause not just minor misfires, but they can cause serious engine damage.
Not to mention, you might be playing the plug, coil, injector, O2 sensor merry go round for another few months while ripping out tons of hair.
Just spend the extra few hundred dollars and get lifetime-warranted injectors from FCPEuro.

Old thread but I'd like to share my experience with ebays remanufactured injectors. I bought them a while back, put them on and coded them. From that day on I have had code 30be, injector calibration plausibility. My car runs well, but there is no reason that my calibration should be off. Its because whatever numbers are on them are incorrect. They are either just chinese or they are oem bmw injectors with numbers on them to make the appearance of being index 12. I am hoping these have done no damage to my motor, and will soon be getting a new set from fcp euro. I spent like 400 or 500 on these, and now I have to spend another 700 or 800 to do it right, when I couldve done it right the first time. Do not buy injectors from ebay, period. In fact, I feel that everything I buy off of ebay I have an issue with. Just stay away from it.
