Just finished replacing DISA valve with GAS kit

https://germanautosolutions.com/stor...d-upgrade-kit/

High quality product and excellent instructions.
I had no issues with mine and only did it as PM.
When I inspected it it had no early signs of deteriations (109k miles).
Still, money well spent as the GAS design is vastly better and it's lifetime warranty.

Better to fix before it self destructs. The repair kits are much better than a new unit. Ours esch died at about 150-160,000 miles

This is on my PM list as well for next year. Glad to hear you had a good experience with it. Gott support those businesses which are innovating like this. Did you buy straight from GAS too? I saw they are selling on amazon but that must really hurt their profits.

Yes, it seems that at about as early as 125k miles some failures have been reported.
It's simply too easy and inexepensive not to do it.

Absolutely, top notch quality and design at reasonable price.
I didn't check elsewhere, I just bought from their website.
I'm all about saving money but the price seemed very fair so I didn't bother looking elsewhere.

The money is one thing, the availability is another. Seems they're always sold out.

I drive by there all the time. I'll have to stop in and take a look if they allow it.
