Installed bosch disc injectors in DI

Well, I ran 19 gallons petrol through my 99 DI after replacing the injectors with those bosch disc type units found in the late '90s 850 (both non and turbo'd models). The start up, idle and power are all improved. I netted 13.5 mpg in 256 mile of 90% city driving. I'm pleased.These fit all of the early fuel injected rrc's and DI to my knowledge if you're looking for any improvement or have faulty stock injectors.

not that I'm in any way doubting your findings, but how old were your injectors previously?

We all drive differently when our kids are in the car.

I think back to the Mark and Robert drag race back to your place from the Bier Garten that night years ago.
