    I have got X5 jets. Exactly the same looking and fitting, also heated. The just have one wider/thinner opening to make the fan. I would find second hand ones on eBay, from BMW they are expensive for what they are.

    Cheers :thumbsup:

    I am also pretty sure I read somewhere they came as standard on certain years of the M3, the later models I would imagine.

    Cheers :thumbsup:

    Exactly the same you just have to pop the nozzle to hose attaches to and turn it 90 degrees so it is face the same direction toon as the originals and pop back in.

    And yes heated using exactly the same electric trial plug.

    These are £27 each new from cotswold. Or range from £10 to £20 each used on ebay

    Sounds like a great update. So do I take it that the original jets are heated?

    I shall have to give this a go.

    Thanks,
