    Is anyone else besides me still running original Diverter Valves?

    63K miles and I'm starting to think I should just replace them... just because. They've NEVER been replaced, as far as I know.

    Anyone else running stock/original DV's?

    I replaced mine with Forge 007's at 60k just for a piece of mind.

    Replaced mine at roughly 40k with the Bosch 710N's but only as a precaution. Didn't know of any problems at the time but once replaced could hear the new ones working.

    I have the APR R1's installed for the last 20K and they work fine but initially they made a lot of honking sounds at part throttle but in the last 6 months they've been quiet, maybe they needed to break-in. If I was to do it all over I think I woudl just go with the Bosch 710N's.

    I think they wear out after a while, causing sporadic performance. I'm probably going to have mine changed out sometime very soon just as a precaution.

    The exact same thought is going through my head. I'm going to get some new ones because they are so cheap and easy to change.

    @RS6-4dr.. : Did you notice any difference with the 710N over the 710P's?
